The latest trend in attracting students!
Schools are looking for any competitive edge to increase their student body. The latest trend as discussed by the NY Times is water parks/lazy river pools. In the end it is the students who pay for these amenities - are they really needed?
When deciding on a school - TAG College placement suggests the following factors (note - lazy river isn't one of them!)
Type of Community (small town to large city)
Size of School
For student athlete's the list continues:
Coach - philosophy, longevity
Ability to play on the team/playing time
Support Services (academics, physical)
Do no allow unimportant factors to make their way into your decision for a school - lazy rivers, football games - make the choice based on the factors that will help your future!
