The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 20.0040 Monday, 26 January 2009

Subject: Completely Irrelevant to SHAKSPER
I would appreciate a favor. My son is applying to colleges and I would
like a suggestion or two from you.
He is bright, and interested in writing, literature, music, a little in
theater. He plays the violin quite well and won a musician of the year
award. He is a work in progress, obviously, as all high school graduates
are. He is interested in a small mid-Atlantic, residential school,
perhaps as far away as Massachusetts, Virginia, or Ohio. He is applying
to Goucher, SUNY at Purchase, Ithaca College, perhaps Wooster. He has
friends at those, who have said good things to him, and have given him a
sense that they would be good schools for him. If you are at all
indicative of the school, where are you? Do you have an opinion of
Juniata, Gettysburg, Allegheny? SUNY Binghamton? He would like at least
one or two more schools to consider and apply to.
On another subject, I really enjoyed the two book reviews. What
interested me more than the two books was the writing styles of the two
critics. I might be inclined to read about obesity through the ages, it
might be fun.
