The last 6 months have been some of the best of my life. Because of the ForCarol Scholarship I was able to have the unique and amazing opportunity to attend summer semester at BYU, an experience I highly recommend to all incoming freshmen to try at their schools. […]
Seokho Hong was the Tracy High 2012 Carol Phan College Scholarship recipient. He has graduated from Stanford with a B.S. in Computer Science and plans to work at Cisco as a Data Scientist. To see Seokho’s winning entry for the Carol Phan College Scholarship….go here. Here is Seokho’s […]
I saw this video on Facebook. Sure hope Derek does not mind me reposting it here for all our readers. 🙂 VERY COOL, VERY CREATIVE. Here is the web site for U.C. Berkeley. – – Drive Safe! Never Forget.
Here is a BRAND NEW blog entry from Caitlin Dong, ForCarol.com’s 2011 College Scholarship winner. Caitlin is now attending U.C. Berkeley (….Berzerkeley….I just had to do it!). 🙂 Enjoy! — College life is undoubtedly different from high school/home life in many ways. While college life and living on […]
Note: Caitlin Dong was the first recipient of the Carol Phan College Scholarship. She is now attending U.C. Berkeley. Thank you, Caitlin, for this update and the kind words at the end of your blog entry. You rock! 🙂 — Sitting here, I realized that I am about […]
Fun video from Pacific….enjoy watching how engineering students design then test their cardboard boats. Why UOP? My daughter Kristen (Soph) and lifelong friend Alison (Frosh) go there! 🙂 – – Drive Safe! Never Forget.
Lori showed me this link on the University of the Pacific web site. In there, UOP (Pacific) states that Payscale.com has ranked Pacific graduates as #5 in salary potential among tons of California universities. We (I say, we, because Kristen goes to UOP) even beat Berzerkely and Cal […]
UC Berkeley Student Orientation by Caitlin Dong Just as high school freshmen attend orientation, so do college freshmen. I attended freshman orientation for UC Berkeley in the middle of June. Everyone abbreviated and referred to orientation as CalSO (Cal Student Orientation). I just learned the other week that […]
Cal Poly was nice, the campus is functional, not nearly as beautiful as UOP, but, the area rocks with beaches, San Luis Obispo and sooo much more nearby. Here are some pictures of our tour to Cal Poly in October 2009 (click to enlarge) […]
I liked Fresno State. Nice and hot, beautiful buildings, and the campus was nice (very Central Valleyish). Visit Picasa for our pictures of Fresno State when we visited in 2009. In the meantime here are two videos: One professional marketing oriented, one by a student (I think). Drive […]
A lot of Tracy students end up at Berkeley (assuming they have the grades to get in). Trivia: My wife’s cousin used to be the Dean of the Law School…pretty impressive! 🙂 Drive Safe! Never Forget.
Stanford University. Not much to say since it is so well known, but, it is in Palo Alto, CA and is a pretty nice campus. Hard as heck to get into. And then when you are there, hard as heck to stay and possibly harder to pay for. […]
This is where Carol was supposed to go. There are two videos. The first one is the “official” UC Davis promo, and the second I made while we were visiting UC Davis. The video below I took when we went with Kristen & Carol to see the campus. […]
