This week’s field trip was to Washington and Jefferson College and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I went there this morning expecting a tiny old broken down college. Fortunately however this couldn’t be farther from the truth. The chemistry building is brand new just opening up last year. Even the old buildings on campus like old main were nice and had a certain character to them. The campus itself was also a lot bigger than I anticipated it being.
But that’s enough about the physical campus; much is also to be said about Dr. Leonard our beginning tour guide and professor of chemistry at W & J. He was very informative and talked to us about all of different opportunities that are available at the college. After his tour of the new chemistry facilities, we headed over to admissions to have a presentation which gave us some information on the college itself as well as the admissions process. Finally we ended the day with a full student led tour of campus, and lunch in the dining hall. Both went very well.
Overall the visit went very well, and I am now aware of the tremendous possible opportunities to be had at Washington and Jefferson College.
