University Prep: Week Two
WEEK TWO is quickly coming to an end and we're sadly left with our last SIX days here at Yale University. The days have been packed since our last newsletter. To quickly recap, we've seen FOUR colleges in TWO states. We've taken ONE more SAT. We've spent EIGHT hours at Six Flags New England. We've had TWO movie nights, ONE yoga class, and ONE highly-competitive scavenger hunt. Then there was the HUNDREDS of laughs that came in between. If any of this intrigues you, read on to learn more about some of this week's highlights!

- COLLEGE TOURS: WEEK TWO -
WHERE: Providence, Rhode Island
WHICH SCHOOLS: Providence College and Brown University
WHERE: Amherst, Massachusetts
WHICH SCHOOLS: Amherst College and University of Massachusetts Amherst
We saw a variety of schools this week, from quite small (Amherst College) to very big (UMASS Amherst) to somewhere in between (Brown University). Our students continued to ask insightful questions in the information sessions and on the campus tours, and perhaps discovered an interest in a school that they didn't originally think they had. We got a taste of the schools - quite literally - by dining at the Providence College and UMASS Amherst dining halls. Students also had time on Thursday afternoon to explore Thayer Street, a popular hangout for students at Brown University in Providence. Next week, we'll travel to two major cities - BOSTON and NEW YORK CITY - to see several more schools!
