Where are you going to college next year? (2019)

Post by Fuddle Duddle » Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:16 pm

This is about the time of year I posted this thread last year. If you're a current high school senior, post here once you know what your plans are!

I’m excited to be going to Cornell College in Iowa! There’s no quiz bowl team there, but I’m looking into starting one.

I'll be heading to the cold quiz bowl wasteland of the North Country as I attend St. Lawrence University (Here we go Saints!) in the fall. I hope to try to do something related to quiz bowl there.

I'll be attending the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in the fall. They don't seem to have an active team. I don't plan to compete full-time, but I am hoping to expand quiz bowl into some of the high schools within the Wilmington area, as there is almost nothing in Eastern NC.

I'm planning on going to Harvey Mudd College next year and am super excited about it!

I don't think there's an established quiz bowl team at the Claremonts (I've gotten mixed info from online research) but I'm hoping if there is none and no one else is interested in starting one to keep my ties to the community through other avenues (writing questions, etc.).

Edit: I've been informed that there is indeed a team at the Claremonts. So yeah, I'll probably join that.

I'm going to the University of Georgia. I will probably test the waters of college quiz bowl, though how much I'll participate is yet to be seen.

I'll be joining the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor in the fall and absolutely plan to play college qb, hopefully specializing in literature and vfa (though this is the polar opposite of my major).

As seen in my updated signature, I'm headed to Yale! I'll probably play some Quiz Bowl while I'm there.

I will also be attending Brown along with Anson and Michael and plan to play, though obviously that is barring any unforeseen circumstances.

I'll be attending Stanford next year--I play to play D2 at least, but anything after that is uncertain.

I'm late to the post too, but I'll be attending Syracuse University in New York state.

As far as I know, they don't have a team, but I would love to start one. I was never ~the best~ player in high school, but I always had fun and would love to keep at it if I can find anyone else interested.
