The car can pretty much get me to the Pennsylvania Turnpike on auto pilot!
Today we headed to Holy Family on the outskirts of Philadelphia.
It’s a 4 year catholic private university.
This is the first suburban college we have been to. Here we are arriving.
Upon arrival we were guided to the right place by balloons!
Inside we were met and greeted by a team of admissions staff… Water and coffee!
Brief presentation took place in the auditorium, I like this part. Luke however finds it boring and starts fiddling with his phone. I think back to the day I dragged him to Chestnut Hill and feared this, but they captured him with the presentation that it didn’t happen.
There are many people here and the we are divided in to three groups and given a guided tour by a student working in admissions.
As with all the students Steve is well informed. The buildings are very well kept and the nursing building was amazing. Set out like a hospital with very expensive dummies to work on. If Luke wanted to be a nurse this would be great!
The dorms were very new that we saw and suite style. The lounge had a huge TV on the wall.
I guess I was not thinking too much and did not take many pics… When we visited the dorms I asked what percentage of students reside on campus… Just 30%.
Next stop the Book Store… Now I have to tell you this is the first which was a BOOK store with just a small amount of spirit wear.
Take a look at all these books!
You can even rent them for the year and return them.
It was a nice tour and after they offered us lunch and a drink.
We headed back to NJ with some thinking to do.
Personally I do not think this is a fit for Luke, I feel that if he is going to a school where most students are commuting he might as well go to the wonderful Brookdale community college on our doorstep for two years and then decide!
But, it’s not my choice…
Here is the new standings as per Luke.
1. Chestnut Hill
4. Holy Family
5. Richard Stockton
Tomorrow is another visit… Then just 2 more left. When we are done we will have visited 9 University/Colleges. I hope that’s enough!
