Berkeley vs Santa Cruz?
Here’s a question that has nothing to do with comics (or sports, for that matter*). It’s a family dilemma.
Sky just got accepted into two universities she likes and is having a tough time deciding between them.
We have plenty of basic information. We know their rankings (edge to Berkeley) and Ivy and Sky have visited both and will make return visits soon.
Sky likes both schools for a lot of reasons, but every time she starts leaning toward one, the other starts gaining on it again. It’s driving her bananas.
So, I figured I’d risk embarrassing her and crowd-source this one a bit. What do YOU think? Any experience or opinions about these two schools?
Sky is visually impaired (pretty significantly, though her peripheral vision is good, so she can get around well). She’s a socially-lefty nerd (like her parents), a vegan (unlike her parents — sorry), and would like to study film and video with an eye toward making same in the long run (possibly after two years of post-grad at a place like USC).
Big questions center on the relative quality of their film departments and related media studies, academic culture, disability services, neighborhoods, local art and culture, faculty strengths and weaknesses, equipment, housing and food services, and anything else you might have an opinion on.
(And feel free to email me instead if you’d like to share your thoughts in a less public way.)
Thanks for your help, The Internet! Back to our regularly-scheduled comics blogging tomorrow.
*’Cause that would be just sad.
