So... there's a lot of people here in or about college, huh? Where does(did) everyone go to school? Who has the best CS department? What school sucks harder than a shop-vac/Monica Lewinsky hybrid?

My school's good (really good, if you're going mechanical or industrial), but the location is crap...

Mandatory co-ops are our distinguishing factor - the only other university that does it like this (that I know of) is Purdue.

Check it out - please! I'm lonely! Boo-hoo-hoo! (www.kettering.edu)
Btw, on the off chance that anyone out there is actually going to Kettering, I'll probably be at the job fair on their front page...

Shameless advertising for work - not like anyone living outside of Michigan can buy from us anyways (www.consumersenergy.com)

I start my sophmore year at the university of Houston, in a couple of weeks. I might end up transfering though. The building which housed the CS dept computer labs was all but destroyed by Tropical Storm Allison. I want to see how bad it really is. Houston was cheap. That's why i chose it.

I went to Royal Holloway College, University of London - no idea about the CS department (dont even know where it was) as i majored in Biology and specifically in paleantology

I was going to be a physics kid and aced my first semester of programming. Needless to say I switched majors and don't regret it a bit. I think our program's pretty easy but it's got all the same classes as the big schools so it can't be too far off. (And I've taken just about all of them)
We do have very good professors though.
We have a new guy coming this semester that's really smart in the graphics area. He and a couple guys came up with a great image processing scheme. The capability to enlarge an image to any size with near flawless clarity. It's truely amazing. (a rather simple concept too)

-cheap ($1800/semester tuition)
-small class sizes (no TAs)
-first name basis with your professors
AND
-all the elementary ed majors you can date :)
(we're one of the top in the nation in elem ed)

My first degree was a B.A. in Theology from Moody Bible Institute, Chicago IL.

My second degree was a B.S. in Information Technology from DeVry. Pretty good school- very flexible for a guy like me (2 kids, full time job, etc.)

The big question is where to go for the next, and what to get.

I have to wait anyway- my wife wants to get her masters before I can go back to school again.
