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.
