Adding a Ph.D. in Educational Technology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa now.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto, many happy memories from there! My specialty is Peace & Conflict Studies.
Gazauzkas is Bulgaria?
BA at New Mexico State University
Graduate Degree at University of Delaware
History Professor in Georgia
I went to Hofstra University and got a BA in Economics.
I earned my bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Georgia. I am currently working on my master's degree in Administration of Higher Education at Auburn University, where I also work full time for the Graduate School.
Wow. It has been so long since I have responded to this thread and I am the original poster, almost two years! Damn have things changed and I can honestly say I have grown a bit since then. As an update this will be my last summer at Monroe Community College before I head out to the University at Buffalo to complete my Bachelors in Economics and very likely my masters as well. Im not sure as to what minor I want to study yet but I will have to make my decision soon as well as see if I can snag an internship over this coming hectic summer.
PhD program at UH Manoa will be changing its name from Educational Technology to Learning Design and Technology as it becomes its own degree, and not a specialization within the Education degree, and mirrors the name that Stanford uses as our program is largely modeled on theirs.
I posted almost two years ago... crazy...
Only update is I'm focusing on estate planning. Graduation in one year!

Will go for an MPP (hopefully in technology) after a couple of years of work.
Undergrad: Wisconsin, Madison (BS in history, int'l affairs; BS because I started out in astrophysics - mostly due to Carl Sagan - and ended up taking a lot of science/math before realizing that my math skills simply were not up to par)
Grad: George Washington; MA Int'l Affairs
Much has changed since I went to school. Tuition at Madison was $450/semester, an astonishingly good deal for a truly terrific education (in a great college town). GW was a let-down by comparison, and far more expensive (like $25K in student loans expensive, in part due to the cost of living in DC).
My son is applying to colleges now. I work at a very large land grant university in Columbus (can you guess which one?), as does his mother. Despite the tuition break, he won't be applying here. Nearby liberal arts schools are far more compelling to us and him. Now, granted, there's a tuition deal at play there, as well, which makes the decision a lot easier to make. But, personally and as a parent, I find the argument for a 4 year liberal arts school far more compelling than a huge research university. Grad school, well obviously, that's a different story.
My company recruits at two Ohio liberal-arts schools -- we bring on about 40 new grads each year to our management development program -- but not at Ohio State.
But...but, haven't you seen the average ACT for the in-coming class???
Not sure why we don't recruit at OSU -- we do at Michigan. (Ouch!) But the bigger point is we do very well with the Midwestern liberal-arts colleges.
@Minnman depending on whether he's following in your footsteps, take a look out my way. We have an IR/development/econ institute in the midst of an R-1, which means students in our programs really do get the best of both worlds, for much less than what the liberal arts schools charge.
Alas, he's more drawn to the sciences (chem/biology/env science), though he is committed to a long-term study abroad experience. Studying IR would have been one of the few majors where I'd have pushed him to have considered Ohio State. It's a very popular major here, but not a department of its own. It's managed by a poli sci prof who 'buys' teaching time from faculty around campus; a very dynamic major and one that attracts some very good students. I think 75% study abroad.
Anyway, he applied early decision to a very good liberal arts school not too far from here. Fingers crossed, though I'll be working with him on a supplemental essay for choice number two in the event he doesn't get int to choice number one.
A good Liberal Arts college in Ohio? Just how many can there be?
(Just kidding! I can think of several with no trouble at all...)
I went over to Kenyon once to heckle their team
For the record, he's considering schools in Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, too; that broadens the base somewhat. There's even one in Pennsylvania (!) that's decent, if you can believe that. About a half-dozen schools in all.
There probably should be a thread about college searches. Though by the time the process will have run its course, I suspect I'll be so sick of it that it'll be the last thing I'd want to discuss.
