  •  I Looked Into Shimer When I Was in HS (0+ / 0-)

    back in the 60s. I made another choice.

    But I love St. John's.  Eighteen years after the fact, my daughter would have been happier at St. John's.  Either campus.  But her choice.  Her decisions.  She was so young.

    One of the Shimer faculty, still there, was the daughter of a fellow progressive whom I had known for years, and another I met while my daughter was a student is so solid in terms of intellect and integrity.

    I sent my daughter a note of congratulations about this "victory" (it's really her first direct & personal experience in activism) and she wrote back about the hard work ahead. She has a head on her shoulders.
