My DS is a junior in HS and has started looking at colleges, he wants to go NROTC with Marine option. We live in Washington State and will be selecting UW as one of his choices (as he has to have an in state option), but he has said that he wants to go to college somewhere that he hasn't been before so that he can experience a different city, culture, etc. Of course, as a mom, I was hoping for an Oregon or California school to keep him close (LOL). What would be some good choices for him to look at? We are going to look at The University of New Mexico, but would love any other advice you all have (based on word of mouth or your own experience). Thank you in advance.
