Where Will You Be Going To College Next Year? 2013-14

Without further ado, the annual "Where will you be going to college next year?" thread for those who want to keep the community informed, or perhaps reach out to college teams reading the boards, or hear about other students who'll be attending the same school. As board staff have noted in previous years, the purpose of this thread is to give answers of the form "I am going to [insert non-hypothetical college here] and will be playing quizbowl there," etc. not to humblebrag, hem, haw, or request decision help or anything like that.

I will actually be going to Indiana University and I would still like to play, but I am not sure if they have an active program.

edit: last minute college decision

I'll be attending Ohio Wesleyan. Depending on whether or not I get my license to do OHSAA basketball officiating, I'll entertain the idea of playing. Within the next few years, I intend on being able to get a club together to get some hosting for high school tournaments, and if nothing else, help spread some quiz bowl in that area and help out with a high school team.

I know they had a club as of at least three years ago.

Sweet deal. I'll have some inquiring to do, thanks for the tip Adam. It's not far from Columbus (like thirty minutes from tOSU), and I know Kenyon has an actively competing club (Gambier is an hour from Delaware), so in theory I can get some stuff going without too much struggle.

I did some snooping based on what Adam said above and found this message from 2010... I know its old but there's always that chance the guy who posted it still uses his old college address and might have some info... can't hurt to try shooting an email there or searching further:

Ed Paranjpe from Bellarmine is probably going to Duke and wants to play.

After three years in a row of only graduating 1 player, 4 of us are headed out the door this year. I'm sure there will be room for all. :)

Anyone who wants to play quiz bowl in college should be aware of this spreadsheet, which contains contact information for most known teams. If you want to get in touch with a team or join its emailing list, the people listed in the spreadsheet are probably the right people to ask (I am the contact for Penn, so if you want to join our listserv, send me a message).

I'll be attending the University of Texas at Dallas, and I'd be interested in playing in college. Does anyone have any information on if there actually is a club there?

I'm having some trouble finding a contact; it's not on this list of college teams: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... _web#gid=0, and the only mention I could find of them competing was this post (viewtopic.php?f=21&t=2063) about an event nine years ago. If anyone has information about the situation there or a contact I'd greatly appreciate it!

To my knowledge, UT Dallas hasn't participated in a single quizbowl event in the three years that I have been in Texas. If you do want to start a club there (you should!), there is plenty of support nearby in the form of former players and local middle/high schools.

The form is currently "view only"; anyone know how to edit it?

Oklahoma's one of the states where :chip: still has somewhat of a foothold; this is partly due to a lack of good quizbowl advocates in the state. Any support you could lend to outreach efforts there would be much appreciated.
