Drew University (New Jersey) was the school that offered our daughter the merit scholarship. I'd rather not mention the name of the school she attended, other than to say it is a small New England liberal arts college that is a member of NESCAC (New England Small College Athletic Conference). This group includes Colby, Bates, Bowdoin, Middlebury, Hamilton, Williams, Amherst, Trinity, Wesleyan, and Connecticut College. She is about to graduate, and has had a wonderful experience. She arranged an internship last summer through an alumnus which was very helpful in securing a permanent job (including a full-paid Master's degree). In addition, she was able to spend a semester in Rome accompanied by a professor and 12 other students. We believe it was well worth the money to give her the opportunity to spend four years living in a community of bright interesting people.
