The 10 Best College Towns and Cities

Boston SquareI loved going to college in Norman, Oklahoma. The city is definitely a college-town and I think it is one of the best places in the world to go to college. However, Unigo.com had a different opinion.

According to them, Boston is the best city in the USA for students to go to college. Why?

“Often, friends and I would go around the city to eat in Boston’s ‘little Italy’ the North End, or catch a Red Sox game, or go to a local bar and shoot pool,” said Rachel, a theater major at Boston University. “The benefit, for me, of going to college within a city was there never seemed to be a shortage of anything to do.”

That makes sense to me. Although BU does not have a traditional campus, there are more than 50 other colleges in Boston, so you can have that academic environment or enjoy living and studying amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.

The next city that made the list is Charleston, South Carolina. This city is located close to a beach and is also a tourist hotspot.

“Charleston is a vacation destination for many people, so it is cool to live in a place other people are only lucky enough to visit,” said Andrea, a biology major at the College of Charleston.

US News College Rankings LogoOf course, there are always going to be schools that are acknowledged as being the best of the best. Usually, they have a long, proud history of being distinguished as one of the greatest schools in the USA. Many of these schools have been around for a long time, like Yale and Harvard.

There were several subcategories this year, and one of these subcategories was the best up-and-coming schools, aka the new kids on the block.

Newt Gingrich’s Education Background

Newt Gingrich is an American politician and former member of the US House of Representatives. He has also had careers as a professor, historian, and author. He is now a candidate for the Republican party’s nominee for the 2012 Presidential race. EDUinReview will now take a look at Gingrich’s education background.

Gingrich was born on June 17, 1943, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His name at birth was Newton Leroy McPherson. His parents are Kathleen and Newton Searies McPherson. The couple’s marriage did not last long and in 1946, his mother remarried an Army officer, Robert Gingrich, who then adopted Newt and gave him his last name. Kathleen and Robert had three daughters: Candace, Susan, and Roberta.

Since Robert was in the military, the family moved often and Newt attended many military academies, but graduated from Baker High School in Columbus, Georgia, in 1961. Gingrich attended Emory University, where he earned his B.A. in history in 1965. He then attended Tulane University, where he earned a PhD in modern European history in 1971. The year before, he accepted a position as an Assistant History Professor at the University of West Georgia. In 1974, he switched departments and began teaching in the geography department. He left the University of West Georgia in 1978 because the university could no longer keep as a faculty member without making him a tenured professor. In 1993, Gingrich again became a teacher when he taught Renewing American Civilization at Kennesaw State University.

University of Missouri’s Shakespeare’s Pizza Wins Best College Food Contest

There are a few things that are inherent to any college campus: students, books, beer and greasy college grub. Just recently, ABC’s Good Morning America launched a “Best Bites: College Edition” challenge, where students voted for their favorite campus grub. In fact, more than 20,000 people voted for the best college food in America.

The competition was fierce, the food was greasy and Good Morning America’s co-anchor and judge, Ron Claiborne was quite stuffed following his cross country food fest.

Here is a look at the college culinary final four: Read the rest of this entry »



College Freshmen Choose New Orleans Schools in Record Numbers

Tule University in New Orleans

Looking for an incredible college town with world class nightlife, an unbelievable music scene, incredible food, and all kinds of amazing things to see and do? And do you mind if that incredible college town is a bit of a fixer-upper? Despite the shadow of Hurricane Katrina, record numbers of incoming freshmen are choosing New Orleans as their college town. There are three main colleges and universities in New Orleans– Tulane, Loyola, and Xavier— and applications and admission to all of these schools are up since pre-Katrina days.

In fact, interest in Tulane was so high that the school had to shut down its online application process, and had to stop accepting applications altogether in January. Newsweek put Tulane on it’s 25 hottest schools list– and dubbed it the “Hottest Rebound School” because of its recovery after Katrina.

A city building its way back from Katrina may not be the best choice for anyone. But many students are choosing New Orleans because it’s in transition. The rebuilding of a city is a big deal, and students can be a part of this. For students who are interested in community service, of course, post-Katrina New Orleans has countless opportunities to pitch in and make a real difference in people’s lives.

And besides, New Orleans is amazing. The biggest problem with going to school there may be that there are too many fun distractions to keep students from their work.
