College recommendations for cool quirky teen
We are looking for a college where there is an atmosphere of creativity in the air. A place for a young gay teen who has a passion for self-expression can feel safe to be herself. She is dedicated to her creative writing and also has a strong interest in art-making. Graphic design is an area she is exploring this summer but has also expressed an interest in metal work and jewelry design. She is also a budding political activist. For a final project she created a type of documentary about gay issues. This was presented at pretty conservative Silicon Valley high school. Within her introverted heart lies a lot of courage and passion. As with many, money is an issue. I am an elementary school teacher and a single mom. But I am open to any colleges you may have already looked or any you have heard about. She says no rural scene for her and so far says she wants to be near a city. U of O in Eugene, Oregon did not appeal nor did The Evergreen State School in WA. She gets good grades but works for them. If you don't mind, please leave your email in case I have any questions. Thanks!!
