|4.||SMU - Southern Methodist University|
A picturesque, sprawling campus located in the heart of beautiful Dallas, Texas. While some novices to grammar and/or correct punctuation may sling in comments from the sidelines - i.e. the people who've never been to or live near SMU - in regards to SMU stereotypes, such as everyone is rich, drives a BMW, and comes from Highland Park, the reality of the school is far from this fabricated fiction. SMU offers over 70 majors to students, and its student-body consists of students from all 50 states and over 200 countries. As a full-scholarship student, I'll refer you to SMU's top ten business school in the world; its #2 dance department in the country; its CCPA department, which has won three consecutive national championships for debate and research, as well as the 2005 award-winning legal debate team; its advertising institute, which has won two consecutive national advertising campaigns, including one for the State of Florida; its journalism department, which consists of numerous former Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, such as Craig Flournoy, who also is a contributing writer for the Columbia School of Journalism Review; and its graduate schools - a top tier law school, a top-five MBA program, housed by a new $18.3 million, state-of-the-art building, and many other graduate programs.
Please disregard the stereotypes - which almost always come from individuals who have been rejected by SMU.
To Note - SMU will most likely be the location of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Do you think that the president would choose SMU if it were substandard? Think about it.
As an alumna of Highland Park, I can say with confidence that "HP" is a safe and friendly community, full of well-to-do families with parents who earn a substantial living as a result of strenuous work in college and graduate school. I do apologize, however, for the "teeny boppers" who have added rather "un-eloquent" personal definitions that are not representative of the general population.
One Highland Park student: "I am so H-O-T-T hot cuz i dont care wtf you think you piece of outside of HP white trash"
Rest of Highland Park: "I wish girls like that would mature a little bit before they learn to speak. They are embarrassing."
|6.||Gaithersburg High School|
A racially diverse high school in Montgomery County whose mascot is the Trojans (yes, very funny). Although it has a bad reputation (a local newspaper published an article calling the school a "gang factory") and students often complain that the building is falling apart (well, OK, it is), GHS has excellent athletic, art, and academic programs available for students who choose to be involved. Unfortunately, the school had three different principals from 2003 to 2007.
Gaithersburg High School student: "Yeah, I go to Gaithersburg."
Churchill student: "Oh, I'm sorry..."
GHS student: "Yeah, I go to Gaithersburg."
Whitman student: "Aren't you terrified?!"
GHS student: "Uhh, no?"
|7.||Youngstown State University|
A reasonably priced institution of higher learning, a.k.a., "the academy on the hill." It was founded in Youngstown, Ohio (between Pittsburgh and Cleveland), as a law school in the YMCA, eventually became a state college and then a state university. It has a great reputation for many of its degrees, including engineering, physical therapy, nursing, business and education. It also has a NEOMFA and a doctorate in education. The campus is sprawling and well-attended by landscapers. The Butler Institute of American Art is surrounded by the YSU campus. Nearby is the world renowned Mill Creek Park.
Many Northeastern Ohio residents--and people from all over the world--attend to save money and end up loving the institution and its faculty and staff, many of whom have national reputations. Killer sports teams! World-class library, Maag Library on Wick Avenue!
There are great Italian restaurants within walking distance, and the downtown has been revived. There are live jazz clubs and great martini bars! Check it out!
Youngstown State University is a tremendous institution where you can obtain a superior education in many fields.
