College Visit #4
We (Madeleine, her dad and I) really liked Montevallo. I do wish we could have gone for an indiv visit/tour instead of the preview day though. The campus tour was short and didn't show us as much as I would have liked to have seen - we saw one dorm (but not the Honor's dorm floor) and the Student Union bldg...... we were not shown the cafeteria, the library, etc..... the preview day began in the basketball gym but we never got a tour of what else was in the facility.
We got good info from the Ed Dept meeting. Madeleine is even considering taking the Elem Ed/ Special Ed combination degree program...... the housing session was fine but I discovered there are parents out there that are way more protective than I am (or didn't bother to look at the website)... and we really really liked the session about the honors program. MJ will be invited to the program since she has the ACT score needed..... she will also be applying for a MAPS scholarship (interviews in January).....
I think Madeleine has it narrowed down now to UM, the W and Benedictine (in KS, which we are visiting this week).
