Whenever I speak in the metro-Atlanta area, that's one thing I say that always gets cheers AND boos.  I'm a University of Georgia grad, and that gets some Georgia Tech fans a-buzzin' with anger (or jealousy).  But consider this:  If a bulldog actually fought a yellow jacket, one gets stung, the other eaten.  My money's on the bulldog.

Looking around our staff this afternoon, I saw graduates of Shorter College, Loyola, William & Mary, Emory, Michigan State, Harvard... (Harvard, Shmarvard.  Nothing compares to UGA.)

But enough about us:  Where are you seniors thinking about going to college?  Where do you underclassmen and women dream of going, and most importantly, why do you want to go there?

    I have recently been accepted into the Art Institiute of Seattle into their Digital Filmmaking and Video Production program. I plan on being the first female director that focuses entirely on creating horror movies. I'm sick of seeing the same movie over and over again. I plan on bringing back the type of horror people saw in the 1960's and 1970's: the type that made people want to sleep with the light on. That is my goal. If I can make one person be afraid of the dark again, I'll be happy.

But after that i plan to go to Temple university in Tokyo japan for a couple of years to major in art and minor in japanese/business. Honestly i can't wait :))

    I recently was accepting into Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. I'll be going into Theater Education to train to become a high school Drama Teacher. My true goal, however, is to become an actor, but the probability of being able to make a living off of acting is very slim, so I decided that becoming a high school drama teacher is a safe back up plan.

    After a year or so at western, I'm hoping to transfer to some kind of theater school in New York so that i can still be attending school while I strive to make my acting career take off.

    I'm going to work for the summer and take the ACT test so I can take winter college coarses. I've laid back for far too long and I'm finally pulling the pieces back together.

    It's my dream and soon to be reality to go to Hillsong International Leadership College in Sydney, Australia. I love seeing the reactions of people whenever they asked where I'm going to college. Their eyes usually get really big and they are shocked that I'm going across the world. By now, most students at my school know that I'm going there, in fact some people come up to me and ask me about it even when I never told them 🙂
    I want to go there because of their Worship Leading program. It's my passion and joy to worship and I'm super excited to start in January 2009!

    This fall, I will be attending the Art of Institue in Seattle to study pastry and baking. I choose the Art of Institute in Seattle bacuse of its location. I would like to stay nearby my family, and besides I don't feel ready to move far away from people I know. The following year i would like to transfer, hopefully I'll feel ready for the BIG move, to the Art of Institute in L.A. and study culinary and business and restaurant management.

    It's all about the BRUINS!!!!!!!! no argument about it, UCLA is the place to go to college. It has a great environment, great campus and the cafeteria food will make you want to live inside the cafeteria forever and never leave it. the pizza is exquisite. UCLA is one of the best public universities in the country so that's where i'll be heading this fall.

    that's right! GO BRUINS!!!!!!!

    I am a senior but I have put off where i want to go to college for too long. I am about to graduate and i am kind of sure where i want to go. I will attend Green River Community College in the fall where i wll try and get a business degree. I would like to live on campus because they have have on campus housing and that would let me get out of my house sooner than expected 🙂 . I think a lot of soon to be graduates have a for sure mind set about where they want to go, but i am just one that has slacked off a little too much. 🙁

    This comes at a very good time, about two or three weeks ago we actually talked and resherched about are future and we talked about the college we hope to be attending. I am planning on going to Univesity of Michigan, not only because I love Michigan, but they have a very good program and they know what they are doing, and guess what I am only in eight grade.

    As a freshman, I'm kind of looking to go to U of M. BUT with the prices of college, I am fortunate to have both of my parents working at Central Michigan University. With both of them working there, I get 48 free credits a year!

    I know where to go. Yale. My friend's father teaches there, it's a good school, and it's one of the few universities that only "smarties" can get in and have a class for musical instruments. (Cello.) I love it so much and I will never quit.

    yeah so I'm only in 6th grade but my parents and older brothers dragged me on a college tour and I'm liking William & Mary. I liked it 'cause 1: It's surrounded by so much American culture and history and B: IT'S MADE OF AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
    don't listen to me though cause heck i'm only in 6th grade (the best grade so far)

    My dream college would be the University of Miami. I've wanted to play football for the canes ever since i was a wee tike. I used to have a helmet and jeresey that i would put on and play outside by myself. I can probobly only get there if my teacher Mr. Carper gives me extra credit for getting his name on T.V. though.
