A Clever Decision

As high school students begin receiving their college acceptance letters, several factors help determine which schools they decide to commit the next several years of their lives to. Location may be the most important factor as some students like to stay near home while others would like to "get away". Others may prefer schools that are known for their area of study or extracurricular interests. Regardless of the reason, picking a university may be one of the most important decisions a student may make in their lifetime.

An unlikely but clever factor helped 19 year old liberal arts major, Margaret Ritten decide on which college to attend and it was definitely not the norm. Ritten picked Oberlin College because it gave her the opportunity to borrow a work of art at Allen Memorial Art Museum for $5 a semester. Selections ranged from masterpieces by Picasso, Chagall, and Matisse! This idea is most certainly one that is enticing to all art lovers!
