Follow up question, of the two Tacoma-Narrows bridges which one was David Steinman going to design?Trivia time. You showed a picture of the Rhinecliff-Kingston Bridge, designed by David Steinman one of the best known bridge engineers. He worked on many projects among the most famous, the Mackinac Strait, and the Henry Hudson amongst them. But forgotten is the fact that his firm lost out on the Tacoma-Narrows, his design was not selected, oh well.
Because I’ve only ever taken the LSL eastbound and it’s always been hours late, this was my first time actually seeing the Hudson, from a Roomette, in daylight. This really changed my attitude about the LSL completely (up until now, I just found the route to be way too dreary and boring).Great report so far! Makes me want to ride the LSL again. I love the scenery on the Hudson.
My sister toured RIT when she was choosing a college four years ago, and she indicated similar harsh winter conditions.Back at the hotel. Between the three tours (which involved walking multiple miles in snow boots), lunch at the cafeteria, and two different “info sessions”, we spent something like six hours at RIT, and I am extremely exhausted.
Probably getting dinner in not too long.
Fortunately it was a relatively moderate 30-35º F today, which really isn’t too bad, but we had to wear boots due to the couple inches of snow that fell over the past couple days and today’s periodic showers of it. Still, it really doesn’t seem to be much worse than NYC.My sister toured RIT when she was choosing a college four years ago, and she indicated similar harsh winter conditions.
I’m still not totally sure, since I honestly don’t entire know what I’m actually looking for. I was not a huge fan of the fact that I would have to spend a fifth year working a “co-op” job endorsed by the college before I could graduate, or that it’s the second largest private college in the country (nearly 19,000 students). But the facilities seem pretty nice, the food was good (always important), and they seem to have a lot of interesting programs and clubs and such. So I would say it’s definitely a possibility.So how did you like the actual campus visit part?
Well done. :giggle: :lol:Two things when you look at schools:
1. Make sure there is a Pret near you. Potbellys also will work as another option.
2. Remember that, when it snows, there will not be snow days. You will still have to go to class. :giggle:
