DICKINSON COLLEGE MONDAY, SEPT 24 1:30 PM JESSE McDONALD

Dickinson College is the first college to be chartered after the US was first officially recognized as a sovereign nation, founded by one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It has a beautiful historic central Pennsylvania campus—all of the buildings are built from the limestone from the college’s own quarry. It continues to be innovative and social justice minded, and is strong in international studies, study abroad and foreign languages as well as business and a workshop approach to science education. Dickinson is challenging and rigorous but with a collaborative rather than competitive atmosphere.

MT. HOLYOKE COLLEGE TUESDAY, SEPT 25 11:00 AM ALICIA LEWKOWICZ

Mt Holyoke College was the first of the women’s liberal arts colleges, and part of a five college consortium in Massachusetts that shares resources and campus activities (the others are Smith, Amherst, U Mass Amherst and Hampshire). Notable strengths are the natural and social sciences and a program devoted to leadership. One of the first highly selective colleges to go test-optional.

UNIVERSITY of MIAMI TUESDAY, SEPT 25 12:45 PM CHARLES CAMMACK

University of Miami is a stunningly beautiful campus in Coral Gables, Florida, 10 minutes from downtown Miami and 20 minutes from the beach. On a visit to the campus one late January, I saw students studying outdoors on the beautiful green lawns under the palm trees. But Miami has shed its image as a party school and is known for strong programs in Architecture, Music, Business, Science–Marine Biology has its own oceanic bio station. Come see why Roeper alums James Murray and David Gardner decided to become ‘Canes (whoosh, whoosh!)

SARAH LAWRENCE TUESDAY, SEPT 25 1:30 PM GRACE BRADLEY

Sarah Lawrence College offers a close-knit community for writers and artists, in a beautiful, quaint setting just a hop away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Sarah Lawrence attracts creative, highly motivated individuals who are creative and independent thinkers. It is particularly strong in the humanities, the arts and creative writing. Seminar-style classes, an “extraordinary quality of teaching,” and brilliant professors who add in-depth written evaluations to their grade reports make Sarah Lawrence a great choice for those who thrive at Roeper. Just ask Roeper alums Jalen Raines, Julia Morgan and Jeremy Goldman!

KNOX COLLEGE WEDNESDAY, SEP 26 9:15 AM ROSIE WORTHEN

Knox College is another member of the “Colleges that Change Lives,” and offers a unique degree of personal attention, even by the standard of other small liberal arts colleges. Friendly and progressive, Knox was founded by abolitionists as one of the first colleges in the nation to embrace racial diversity and its “Old Main” was a site of the Lincoln-Douglas debates. Located mid-way between Chicago and St. Louis, students can study in Chicago for a Semester in the Arts or gain early admission to the Rush Medical College. Strong programs include creative writing, math, political and natural science and 3+2 programs in Engineering, Nursing, Law, Architecture and Medical Technology.
