What can I do to help boost Chico States rep and kill of the rumor that its not awesome?! - May 19th 2009, 02:09 AM

Hi all, want to hear a fun story?

So I got accepted to Chico, and a few other schools, I Went in not expecting much and was blown away by how much they had their "campus, programs, town, ect " I was all set to go their when all of a sudden I got a notice from another school that I Had wanted to get in and had been "wait listed" . This school is closer to home and slightly bigger campus wise. I've had my eye on it since 10th grade, not another school on the planet had a chance once I saw they'd actually accepted me.

That's the only reason I'm going their instead , and it was still a really hard decision for me. But being at Chico, I felt that its current rep is horrible in comparison to what it really is and if it where seen for what it is, I can really see it growing even more, gaining some much deserved respect. What I want to know is what can I do to try and boost Chico's rep? Or spread awareness of how cool it really is, beyond just recommending it to friends who didn't get into say... a UC.

If you go there, you should tell your friends about how the school makes YOU feel (talk about the specifics such as campus, certain professors you have met, best departments). You must keep in mind that there is a school that basically fits everyone and college is what you make of it. Even if the school is not as renown as say Berkeley, it doesn't really matter as long as it fits you and you are able to grow.

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

Duly noted, but It's not like im going somewhere else because of that, I just wish that that sort of ideal was more prevalent in students.

I'm sure it is, so make sure your friends know that this is a perfect situation for you and whatnot. Like I said above, tell them why you love the school, show them around campus, etc.

Go there, win a noble prize?

not much you can do to help their rep. I mean seriously, they have probably been pouring money into their schools to increase that!
