College hunting season has begun. I spent two days plotting our strategy for visiting 8 colleges in 4 days in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and New York. Yesterday morning we left Bethesda, drove north, dropped Clare off at Sarah Lawrence (where she gave Andrew a mini tour of the campus), then drove to Rocky Hill, Connecticut where we spent the night in a Hampton Inn. Today we will visit Wesleyan in Middletown and Connecticut College in New London before heading to Massachusetts.
Andrew has been texting friends, many of whom are visiting the same colleges we’re visiting, only in a different order.
It is raining and is supposed to rain harder this afternoon. Not the best way to see colleges, but it is spring, after all.
Rupert has come with us, he’s hoping to visit Rupert, Vermont if we can fit it in and maybe taste some Rupert Rising Bread.

I love the whole “visiting colleges” concept. It must be so exciting. Only 7 universities in NZ. They're all very similar unless you're doing some speciallty courses. And when I started, I only considered one. How boring of me.
Back when I was a high school junior I only applied to one school too and didn't visit any. My husband visited a couple though.
It sounds kind of fun, and hectic. Is college in Rupert's future?
