Chairs – 42

June 20, 2011

This past weekend we went to the Boston area to visit my younger brother and his family. While there we visited Northeastern University. My son, who will be entering his senior in high school in the fall, is looking at colleges. All over campus they have these Adirondack chairs painted bright colors. For a school in Boston it has a very nice campus.

I do feel bad for kids applying to colleges today. Northeastern’s freshmen class is 2800. This past year they had 47,000 applications. They accepted just under 35%. In the past few years there seems to have have been a veritable explosion in college applications!

    Makes you wonder what your son will be concerned about when he will be helping his child look for a colledge. Progress?? Hmmmm.

    And w/ the dwindling scholarship funds these numbers are even more depressing! I know, we are doing the same thing w/ my boys…wow, has the cost of college gone up!

    Love the vivid chairs and how they are facing each other…looks like they are engaged in a conversation (about rising college costs, of course)! 🙂

      You have two going at the same time. Wow! I can’t count that high. Having two children 14 years apart allowed to save for both kids as if they were each an only child!

    The chairs facing each other seem to be making a statement . . . let the debate begin . . .

    Very vivid and cool looking chairs. With the tree foliage in the background, this looks like a great spot to relax.
