Thoughts on Quinnipiac

For all ten of you who visited RL today with the expectation of reading something new, I sincerely apologize. I was visiting Quinnipiac University. I have narrowed down schools to those with strong Communications departments, because, honestly, if blogging paid, I would blog for a living. It doesn't, but I'll live.  

Most communication majors (media studies, media production, journalism, etc.) take place in the Ed McMahon Center, named after it's donor, the one Ed McMahon. The walls are lined with photos of famous visitors such as Tim Russert, and the facilities are excellent. We were able to set up a meeting with Michael Calia, the director of the center, who who very kindly saw us through the entire building. He went from room to room, showing off endless state-of-the-art media technology. He actually got jittery with excitement upon showing us a room with the sexiest audio equipment probably in existence.

That was that. On top of the forest of evergreens and rickety bridge running over a trickling brook, there was this impeccable technology center.

I'm applying.
