University of California – Berkeley

Next, we made a stop over the bay to visit the beautiful, nature-filled campus of U-Cal Berkeley Situated in the vibrant city of the same name, there was lots to do and see. Here are some of our favorite pictures from our visit:

Berkeley 1

When we found North Gate Hall, the home of the Graduate School of Journalism we felt like we had left the Berkeley campus. Yet North Gate Hall – home to architecture students from 1906 to 1964 and to the Graduate School of Journalism since 1981 – is one of the most revered buildings on the Berkeley Campus. Most of John Galen Howard’s buildings on campus looked very different from North Gate Hall. Howard is best known for the large, stately buildings that dominate the Berkeley campus, including: Hearst Memorial Mining Building, the Greek Theatre, California Hall, Doe Memorial Library, and Le Conte Hall, among many others.

Today North Gate Hall is nearly all that remains on campus of the stand of brown-shingled buildings that once covered the north Berkeley hills.

Berkeley 2

Benjamin Cardozo is remembered for his significant influence on the development of American common law in the 20th century, in addition to his modesty, philosophy, and vivid prose style. We liked seeing his quote on the Berkeley Law School building since he was a native New Yorker!

Berkeley 3

With more than 16,000 works of art and 14,000 films and videos, BAM/PFA’s collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive of any American university museum.

Berkeley students have access to PFA’s film collection as well as to thousands of books, periodicals, posters, and still photographs. We wish we could have stayed and explored this amazing collection!

Berkeley 5

Much of the older campus is built in the Beaux-Arts Classical style. This area is now referred to as the “classical core” of the campus.

Berkeley 6

We’ll end our recap on a nice “note” (sorry, lame joke) — the entire campus smells like eucalyptus!

Berkeley 4

Thanks so much to all who welcomed us around the Berkeley campus.

Hoping to see some Berkeley students this summer in NYC!

San Francisco State University

Our next stop in the Bay Area was at San Francisco State University. We had a great time walking around the beautiful campus and learning how the Career Center team helps SFSU’s 30,000 students make smart decisions about their careers.


Students find a peaceful perch above the Cesar Chavez Student Center.


An artful surprise…


Thanks so much to all who showed us a warm reception, and helped us learn more about SFSU.

Will keep an eye out for SFSU students in NYC this summer!

University of San Francisco

A bout of winter snowstorms had us “California Dreamin” so we were definitely happy to pay a visit to the sunny University of San Francisco campus. Here are some pics from our trip:

SFState 1

The USF School of Law has just expanded its externship program to include out of state externships during the school year. We hope to see some students in NYC this fall!

SF State 2

In 2011, San Francisco topped New York, Washington, D.C., and Boston to be named best college town by the American Institute for Economic Research. Rankings were based on 12 criteria, including diversity, arts and leisure, research capacity, and entrepreneurial activity — all of which make San Francisco an exceptional extended classroom for USF students.

SF State 3

After a busy day walking around and meeting the friendly USF staff, we were thrilled to recharge with a slice of delicious pizza made in a wood-burning oven:


Thanks so much to everyone who gave us a warm welcome. Hope to see some USF students in NYC!

Ohio State University at Newark

Our last stop in Ohio was at Newark branch of The Ohio State University. Newark was a charming city and the staff at OSU was just as welcoming.  We had a bite — appropriately — at the Big Apple Cafe, highly recommended to anyone passing through town!

School spirit fills the Academic Advising Office at OSU – Newark.  This life-size Brutus was drawn / painted / constructed by the daughter of one of the receptionists!


Thanks again to all of the staff for their hospitality. Hope to see some OSU Newark students this summer in NYC!

Wilmington College of Ohio

While in beautiful Ohio, we took a drive to visit the sprawling campus of Wilmington College of Ohio. The staff gave us a warm welcome (which we appreciated on a cold day!). Here are a couple photos from our trip:

With a fresh coat of snow, Wilmington’s Campus truly sparkles!

Wilmington 1


This dormitory has a deep-rooted history at Wilmington.  In 1948 ground was broken by students and faculty members with picks and shovels in an effort to build a badly needed dorm (with no budget to do so)!

Wilmington 2

We had a great time and hope to see some Wilmington students this summer in NYC!

Capital University

While we were in Columbus, Ohio, we made sure to make a stop at Capital University. Situated in the bustling neighborhood of Bexley, Capital offers an intimate campus environment and an exceptional faculty.

This wall art found in the Student Union beautifully illustrates the phrase “You can’t really know where you’re going – until you know where you’ve been”:

Bexley 1

It looks like Capital Students have their sights set on NYC already with this banner’s “Broadway” reference!

Bexley 2

We had a great time meeting the friendly staff and students. Looking forward to seeing more of the Capital students this summer in NYC!

Ohio State University Career Fair

We recently got to live the life of a Buckeye for day while attending the Ohio State University Arts & Sciences Career Fair!  Nestled in the exciting city of Columbus, Ohio, OSU has a vibrant campus with no shortage of great restaurants, great shopping and, of course, smart staff and students.

Here are a couple pictures from our day…

Getting things started at the Arts and Sciences Career Fair on campus at OSU:

Thanks so much for everyone who stopped by the booth and gave us such a warm welcome! Looking forward to seeing OSU students this summer in NYC!
