Last visit with a penguin
Over the weekend, Max and I visited Eckerd College in St Petersburg, FL as part of our continuing series of college visits (see here to traceback earlier blog entries). The setting was lovely, and the food and dorms were as nice as any we have seen. Compared to the other small schools we visited (Earlham, Kalamazoo, Ursinus), Eckerd is less academically intense, and the drug and alcohol policies seemed fairly lax to the point of being almost nonexistent. Nonetheless, the unique marine science program, extensive international travel, internships, and faculty-student interaction were impressive.
