Help me with college choosing...
Im a good student, I have like a 4.1 QPA and I did well on my PSAT(like a 1300) and Im gonna take the SAT this spring, but I really want to know a good quality university/college that has excellent proximity towards awesome terrain whether it be like park, big mt, urban, etc. I was thinking UVM, Cornell, Colorado U, Penn(ha i wish), and maybe Darthmouth, and ill throw penn state in there too... where do you guys go to and whats the scene there
Look for the new Outside Magazine. It lists the 40 best College Towns. It talks all about the outdoors and stuff like that.
#1 is University of California at Santa Cruz
#2 is University of Colorado at Bouldor
#3 is Middlebury College in VT
#4 is Warren Wilson College in NC
#5 is Montana State in Bozeman MT. = my pick
where are you living noww?

fuck goin to any party school or a school because it has a good ski mountain, go to U of M, one the best universities, and you would be able to definitely get in with a 4.1. Don't base your life around skiing. Actually I just like U of M so much because I live in Michigan but it is a really good school.

i asked this question like 2 weeks ago look at the thread its on the second page
University of Utah:
30 Minutes away from Park City, Snowbird, ALTA, The Canyons, Brighton
Cornell- there is about 4 ski places within 30 of there, the best for jibbing are labrador and toggenburg, the parks are better then most in NY but its only NY so its still not super good
I have the same situation, and I think I'll be going to Bozeman, cause it has a good engineering and biotech programs, in addition to architecture, and it's amazingly close to really good ski areas. Plus, you'd have no money to afford skiing if you go to Cornell or Dartmouth (each about 35,000 a year) unless you're a rich bastard in which case you should be shot.
We have an old saying down on the bayou....Blehhhhh!!!
university of colorado.... # 1 party school.. near the mountains.. so dope
Yeah, I was thinking about Colorado, but then I've heard some rumors about Boulder being like a stuck up town. Also from what I've heard there is no diversity on campus which would piss me off because right now my school is like 96 percent white 3 percent asian and less then one percent black. So I mean Id like to develop some normal friendships outside my own race. Im not basing my life around skiing, but I do wish to do it in college especially.
Im a freshman at penn state, and ive been living in state college most of my life. Its a sweet place, and a good school. There is a lot of diversity here. I am in fact rooming with a guy from elsavador. We have a small mountian 10 min from psu. There are a few comps thrown every year including big air. we have a sad pipe but it depends on the amount snow we have. Mountain biking is awesome here. Not a bad place to live. If you want a good education dont go to the mountains, becasue if i went to CSU i would ski more than study.
pgh you're right about the lack of diversity.....its like that not only in boulder i go to CSU in ft collins and its alot like that.....but you don't wanna go here you can get into a lot better school with your numbers
