College Tour - Day One

To help Shannon decide on which college to attend, we are doing a "college tour".  It is not our normal way of travelling but this time it's a road trip.   The first college was UC Merced.  Shannon did not choose it as one of her top ten but since it is already on our way we decided to take a look.  It is very new; some buildings are still under construction.  Shannon kept repeating that her school, Oak Ridge, has more students than this university.  Well, the good thing is that there is a lower instructor to student ratio.  Everything is new and fresh and maybe lab equipments are at least current if not top of the line.   The university sits in the middle of what seem formerly agricultural field and very close to the Yosemite Lake. 

To me UC Merced has a lot of potential.  We'll see what Shannon thinks.

We had lunch at Panera Bread in Stockton and spending the night in Bakersfield
