Roll-your-own campus visits, plus, crashspace?

Elayna 2011
I'm going to ConBust at Smith next weekend! Coincidentally, Smith is having a college visit event that weekend, so Elayna's coming too!

So here are some things:

1. We'd love to find crashspace for me + Judah + Elayna Friday and Saturday nights.

2. We'd love it if Elayna could visit Mount Holyoke and Amherst while she's there! (She's going to Hampshire's visitation day in a few weeks.) It looks like she could hit an Amherst tour Sunday at 2, but we'll hit town too late on Friday for her to make the last Mount Holyoke tour of the day. Might any of you awesome Mount Holyoke people be willing to show an awesome geeky seventeen-year-old around your beloved campus? She'd be available late afternoon/early evening on Friday, after 4pm on Saturday, or Sunday morning. I'd be available Friday.

Anyone? :)

I can fit one, and I'm walking distance from Smith.

Not sure if that helps.

All are excellent schools. One odd consideration, posited by my mother while encouraging me NOT to apply to her alma mater (Mount Holyoke): there's something to be said for not going to a school that will be at the absolute max of your intellectual ability. Being able to study a little less frees time for the rest of the college experience - theatre club, endless talks over beverage, lying in the grass debating the universe. When Mom was at Holyoke, the difference between a B and an A was about 20 hours a week of studying. And that was just one class. There amy be more room to breathe now, but it's something to think about.

My sister graduated from Mount Holyoke a couple of years ago, and she love love loved it. (Her fiancee, otoh, feels that it was really a waste of time and money. Different folks...)
