College Days Challenge

A few weeks ago my dad took us all to a CAL Berkeley football game. It was a big deal because it was the first time the kids have had a chance to go to a college campus and get the idea about what that means. My dad went to Berkeley and played football there, so he was very excited to take the boys around to various buildings and departments and explain what goes on in each.
Then we made out way to the campus center where the band was warming up for the game. That was AWESOME! The kids were mesmerized (note to self...get them in music lessons ASAP). Then we walked up to the stadium where they had some pre-game stuff going on. We ate hot dogs and then shuffled in for the game. All in all it was a perfect day!
It got me to thinking that we should do a College Challenge. Since this is sort of Homecoming time...I think this is the perfect time to recollect your own college days, a family history at a certain college, your children's "dream school" list. There are various ways to work this challenge, so have fun with it!!
This is going to run from today through Oct. 23rd. Please be sure to add your link here so we can find it and add it to the slide show! :)
Here are the DT examples:

Hey Jana. I just completed a mini book all about my college life. Can I submit it for this challenge? Here's a link to the slideshow.
Thanks!
