Fly-In to the College of Wooster
The College of Wooster, one of the Colleges That Change Lives, hosted a group of independent educational consultants to help us learn more about this premier college for mentored undergraduate research. Our visit coincided with the campus-wide presentations of graduating seniors' Independent Study projects; we were able to sit it on several of them! We also toured campus, enjoyed entertainment by one of Wooster's a cappella groups, visited the site of the almost completed, state-of-the-art Ruth W. Williams Hall of Life Science, chatted with students, staff and faculty, strolled through the charming downtown, and witnessed the collegiality and camaraderie Wooster is known for!
