First of all, I do not attend school so I cannot comment on the quality of education you'll receive at Vassar College. I enjoy visiting various colleges and universities and I take photos because I find them very photogenic and Vassar did not disappoint me at all. Walking through the campus was very peaceful and quiet. It was Parents Weekend and the college was giving tours. I went everywhere with my cameras. My first stop was the college library. It is beautiful in the inside just like the outside. Check out the stained glass window inside the reading area. I found the science building very interesting too. When I went to the chapel somebody was giving instructions or possibly lessions on the huge pipe organ. Sunset Lake provided a great photo opportunity. Vassar Lake was not as pretty. The Main Building was busy with visiting parents. I briefly went into the art gallery but I had my backpack of camera equipment with me and I did not want to leave it anywhere. I would have loved to have seen it. Vassar Collage: famous and classic.
We love the campus , the people and students of Vassar College. And I hope my boy will enjoy his best four years life here.
