I looked at going to a number of other schools, both small and large, and settled on "K" as my sister, now a doctor who studied anthropology there, loved it. I really enjoyed the smaller size of the school and the accessibility of the faculty. When I first started college I had no idea what I wanted to study, and was able to meet with several department heads early on to figure out what it was I wanted to pursue in terms of a major. I found the classes challenging, which was reflected initially in my GPA as my work ethic from high school, do nothing and get A's, didn't exactly work at "K". The school does a great job at getting you to expand your view of the world and is often recognized as a leader in this area of higher ed. I spent a my junior year in Africa, did a Summer project in Madrid, and was awarded two post-grad fellowships upon graduation, one in France and another in Germany. While I agree with others that "K" is best for those who plan to go to grad school, I think in many ways this is because "K" grads are true liberal arts folks and use their undergraduate experience to quench their thirst for pure knowledge rather than study what could be termed more practical subjects like accounting, business, etc. I wouldn't give up my experience for anything. I know I'm a more well rounded, unique, and out-of-the-box thinker due to my time at "K"…
