LOL. I went to college in Philadelphia, where the local all-girls school is Bryn Mawr. Stayed over a few nights there too.

HA! Never thought of it that way. I'll have to rib him a little on that.

I currently go to UC Berkeley and without traffic or bad weather, it is about 2hrs 50min - 3hrs to Squaw.

Here is the website for the Ski/Snowboard Club: www.weridesnow.com

Both the snowboard team and the ski/snowboard club are riding Squaw this year (they offered Berkeley students the silver season pass for $299)

There is also a ski team that is riding Sugar Bowl this year (they are paying $325/person for season passes w/o blackout dates).

Last year the snowboard team rode Heavenly (cant remember the price, somewhere between $250 and $350) and the ski/snowboard club rode Kirkwood ($200 for a season pass).

Vassar is near Hunter,  What about Colby and Bates.

and 4.1 ??

I went to UVM and it has improved since I was there - not because I am not there though.  Still a big party school what I have been hearing.
 
 
I also went to UVM and it HAS improved significantly because I left.  Problem is, the out of state tuition is now $29,500...that's just tuition.  My son wanted to go, but since we live in NY now...

Ding, ding, ding!  McGill is spectacular.  All 3 of my daughters looked at it but opted for other choices.  It's very inexpensive.  In fact, a few years ago, French majors didn't pay tuiition...not sure if that's still the case.  A clean, cosmopolitan, safe, spectacular city that has all of the culture of living in Europe but a 45 minute car ride from Vermont or NY.  Oh, and you can transit most of the main part of town underground in the winter including most of the campus, so the bitter cold is mitigated somewhat.  Admissions office can help with the student visa thing...it's pretty easy.

Well, I asked my parents about McGill... and they responded with a resounding "no."

I can understand their position.  Canada is another country and the college scene there is quite different from here.  We have a much stronger bond among students, faculty, and alumni in the US.  Academically Canadian schools are strong, but you just don't get the full experience of college that Americans are accustomed to.
