College Hunting in Beautiful SoCal :)

Whew we had a fun but very busy weekend! My oldest brother Nick is a senior in high school this year and is getting ready to apply to colleges. So he came down to stay with us for the weekend and we took him college hunting.

We went to five different universities in the span of three days! Whew we were so tired after this weekend but we had a great time and now my brother has got a lot of decision making to do. Haha but we were glad we got to be part of the process.

He currently lives about 500 miles away from us so it was great to get to see him for the weekend!

We went to UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly San Luis Obisbo.

Here are some pictures of the amazing campuses!!

 Up first: My personal favorite: UCLA!

Me in front of the coolest library ever!

Next we went to UC Irvine

This is Nick in front of just one of the engineering buildings! It was HUGE! That's him way at the bottom.
Doesn't he look like a natural?

Next up was UC San Diego.
Of course a beautiful campus that is within walking distance of the beach!
They have an awesome library!! And that's Hubby and I relaxing on campus :)

Fourth we went to Cal Poly but we didn't really get any photos from it.

And last we stopped by UC Santa Barbara...okay talk about a BEAUTIFUL campus!

We had a great weekend! And we are so proud of our brother. All of these schools are among the top in the Nation and he should have no problem getting into any of them! We are so proud!

And we are excited that he might be moving closer to us in a year!!! :) Yay!!

Anyone have any input or advice for him in this decision process? We would love to hear from alumni!! :)
