Family stuff again, but of the good this time.

My niece is a keen rower, and is pretty good at it too (3 gold medals in various classes at the recent NZ Nationals... /auntie brag). She has the opportunity to take up a sporting scholarship to a university in the US this year and she wants to do a degree in logistics management.

So she has two offers. One from Ohio State (Columbus), the other from Michigan State (East Lansing). Both offer the courses she's after. There are a couple of other scholarship girls from NZ at Michigan. The finances are about the same. Ohio wanted an answer last week, but in view of Dad's death they've given her more time. The offer from Michigan only came in a week ago.

So... is anyone familiar with either of these universities? Any advice, anecdotes, information about them, the cities they are in, anything to help her make up her mind - I said I'd ask!

A get_together of another sort; my mother, my aunt and, for a brief afternoon, a family cousin. Dragging out of photos, arguments about whether my grandfather did walk 6 miles from the farm to play a game of Rugby one Saturday, whether great-aunt Ivy was the prettiest girl in her school... Not much that was new, but fascinating to listen to all the same.

I took some snaps of old photos. To spare you all, behind the cut...
