College Visits in Florida!

The H.B. Plant Museum at University of Tampa

While Equinox was out of the water, Ally and Karyn took the opportunity to visit a couple more prospective colleges, this time in Florida. Specifically, the University of Tampa, and Eckerd College, both located in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area. Ally is interested in marine sciences, and/or public relations/communications as majors (in either of which she will excel) so we toured each campus for more information and to see if either place was a good fit. Both had their strengths, and we really enjoyed each visit, but I think that UTampa captured her heart. SO...lots to consider and get done, as applications and essays lie ahead! After the tours and interviews, we hung out on St. Pete Beach, as we were staying at "The Pink Lady", the Loews Don Cesar Resort. It was a great time!! Perfect weather, good college visits, what's not to like? Ally is feeling much more very excited about college now, and is ready to get to work on the applications!
