Happenings at The School of Graduate Studies at the University of North Dakota

Matt returns from California and samples In-N-Out

Hello to all of our faithful readers of The Graduate School blog. I recently returned from sunny California where I had the opportunity to participate in Whittier College’s Graduate and Professional Fair and host an information table at California State Polytechnic University. Both of these schools are located in southern California near Los Angeles. I know that might seem like a long way from home but, as soon as I set up my table, student’s started coming over, and they were taking serious interest in The Graduate School at the University of North Dakota.

While I was at Whittier College I talked to several students who were interested in our doctoral History program, as well as our Psychology and Forensic Psychology programs. I talked at length with two students who were very curious about our Art Department and the MFA degree, something I can identify with. The next day at Cal Poly Tech I was very fortunate to have a table outside, in the main student common area. It wasn’t hard to be out in the sun, talking to students, answering questions, and getting to know people. There were a lot of information requests for our programs in Chemical Engineering, Social Work, and Applied Economics. Of all the students and faculty who I talked with, they all made me feel very welcome.

Thank you, Whittier College and California State Polytechnic University, for having me on campus and allowing me to visit with you. I hope to be back soon.

On the Side…

Some of you might have read my brief burger review in my earlier post about my visit to Montana. Well, that has initiated a quest/challenge to find The Greatest Burger Ever, a mission I’m glad to be a part of. Before I left for California I was told by several people that I absolutely had to eat at an In-N-Out Burger, supposedly, they have “the Best” fast food burgers in LA.  I called up a friend of mine at Cal Poly, Mr. Noam Hart, and he took me to the nearest In-N-Out Burger. Well, it’s a very honest fast food experience; the bun is a bun, the meat is meat, the vegetables are the appropriate color, and the fries are fried.  I can’t say it’s the best burger I’ve ever had but it wasn’t the worst either. So the quest continues, maybe I’ll find the Greatest Burger Ever in Milwaukee, WI next week.

If anyone is traveling around the Ontario, CA region and needs a taxi, ask for James with Yellow Cab, he’s the best driver ever. This is not a challenge to find the best driver ever, just a testament to reliable service. (Matt Anderson)
