Response to OmahaBlueDog (Original post)

7. When I took my daughter on visits

I was concerned about campus security because she tended toward urban schools. Ultimately she went to The George Washington Unversity in DC. I was fortunate that during her orientation I got to talk to the chief of campus police. Turns out GW sits three blocks west of the White House adjacent to the State Department in Foggy Bottom, as a result it is one of the most secure campuses anywhere--an alarm triggers response from at least four agencies and there are emergency phone boxes on every block.

She graduated four years ago and is now getting her PhD at Michigan State. While she did great at GW and earned a great degree, she really missed out on a "college town" experience.... one of the reasons she ended up in East Lansing and loves it.
