What are some of the standards you have while looking for a college?
GOD BLESS AMERICA
I already did this one, twice, but I'll tel you what I looked for each time:
First go round:
excellent vocal performance program
Second go round:
strong, balanced academics
a good library
small, discussion style classes
student input sought and valued by administration
good theatre and music departments
professorial interest in students' development as thinkers
alumni accomplishments post-bac
Those are the things I looked for. Clearly, the first time around, I had a little tunnel vision.
To recommend to my kids (and my church kids) I tell them to look for:</font>
Close ties for ministry and service at a Baptist church</font>
Strong academic program (accredited)</font>
Full program of music, drama, intercollegiate sports, intermurals, activities</font>
Historic fundamentalist connection, with Bible core or major for all students</font>
Sensible but strict rules and policies for moral and godly living</font>
Godly, concerned faculty to enhance interaction and growth</font>
Grad program for additional study</font>
Small, intimate student body but large enough for full program (1000 or so students)</font>
Found it at Maranatha Baptist College in Watertown, Wisconsin. My children all opted to attend part of their college there . . and all graduated from there.
