Driving through the MidWest

It was a long drive from Holland, Michigan to Bloomington, Indiana this week.  Well worth seeing two very different colleges - Hope College, a private Christian liberal arts colleges with outstanding facilities and friendly students.  New music building, housing in "cottages," and a lively downtown makes this a great option for students interested in a smaller campus in an active college town.  Indiana University, one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen, has just about everything you could want in a large university.  Outstanding business school, journalism school, performing arts, D1 Athletics, and the nightlife on Kirkwood.
