Anybody going to the Suffolk open house tomorrow night?
« on: January 18, 2006, 10:13:36 AM »
I've pretty much decided on Suffolk anyway (easy to do when they're the only school that'll take me) but I'm going to the open house tomorrow night to see what there is to see.  Anybody else going?

I hope there is a BAFF spotting.

I heard that he is a key part of the tour.  You get to see him hard at work in the library, but you can't talk to him unless you pay an extra 50 bucks.

Certainly.  And I'll be sure to snap a pic of Baff.

Well it was a cool open house because they actually did teach a class.  Valerie Epps, professor of law and director of the international law concentration, lectured about the legality of the US invasions of Afghanastan and Iraq.  She was energetic, enthusiastic and engaging, despite her being recently diagnosed with 'nu-mon-ee-a' (as it sounded in her British accent).  Suffice it to say, she was very cool - I hope to have a class with her at some point. 

Following the class, we had a talk with the Director of Financial Aid.  She was also very informative and took a lot of questions (most of which were surprisingly decent questions). 

They had student led tours and refreshments next.  The refreshments were lame - bags of chips, cookies, and a cheese and cracker plate with Cokes and waters.  I remembered the wonderfully catered affair that Northeastern put on for their open house sadly.  Then I decided that if Suffolk is directing the money (they saved on cheap-o refreshments) towards financial aid, that is fine with me. 

As I've said before, the Suffolk facility is gorgeous.  It was built in 1999 and they pride themselves on being state-of-the-art.  They certainly are on the cutting edge, technology wise, compared to other schools I've seen and read about.  The classroom was a smaller lecture hall.  Everybody sat in comfortable 'office-style' chairs at 4-5 person tables.  Each station had power outlets and lan jacks (although the whole place is wireless, so I doubt many people use those jacks.)

I was once again impressed.  I bought a sweatshirt for my wife, so she too is impressed.

Well so far, they're the only fit for me.  Fortunately, I like it there.  I'm not thrilled about the size of the classes - I think they take about 500 people per class.  But I suppose If you can get near the top of a 500 person class, well that is really saying something.
