Ironically that "smaller state college" I went with was Ivy Tech, where I am
attending now. I went to Purdue 25 years ago for a degree in EE, and at that
time, the Fort Wayne campus was a small 2 year college which was small and
I transferred to West Lafayette, and, well the heck with the "I care about
you" attitude - that blew out the window. Not that they had windows in those
concert-hall sized lecture rooms with hundreds of students.
Today the local campus (Indiana University - Purdue University - Fort Wayne)
has grown too much, and seems to have forgotten where they came from. I had
a major dose of that when I visited them to order my old transcripts - yes
many of my old Purdue credits transferred... but we were using an IBM System
360 for a computer back in my day there... times in the computer sciences
field have changed slightly ;) Ivy Tech is now, what IPFW was years ago.
It's so ironic that back then, we thumbed our noses at the college across
the street (Ivy Tech) as a gear-head tech school - my oh my how times
However both colleges are the way to go over ITT indeed.
