Do most students have cars at college?

It sounds like something small, but it could be a factor in deciding which college would be a good fit for you – do most students have cars or not?

US News just published an article discussing: 11 Universities Where Students Rarely Bring Cars

Four universities reported that zero percent of students had cars on campus: Georgetown University in the District of Columbia; Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore; Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey; and the University of Wisconsin—Madison.

Other universities on the list include Boston University, Boston College, MIT and University of California – Santa Barbara.

Estudantes de “Dartmouth College” vêm ao Band!

Numa oportunidade de troca de experiências, seis estudantes de português e espanhol da Dartmouth College vieram ao Colégio conversar com alunos interessados em estudar fora. O Band foi a única escola visitada pelos estudantes pois estavam acompanhados por Carlos Minchillo, que já lecionou no Colégio e atualmente é professor de Português e Espanhol da faculdade americana.

O aluno da 2.a série do Ensino Médio, Rafael Valio Icó, que quer estudar fora, conta sobre a importância de saber das possibilidades. “Foi muito interessante. É importante conhecer as faculdades para saber o que você quer e o que não quer”, disse ele.

Além de terem ajudado os alunos do Band, os estudantes de “Dartmouth College” também puderam conhecer o Colégio. Para isso, eles assistiram às aulas de História do Brasil, Geografia e Filosofia e também visitaram todos os cantos do Band, acompanhados pelo Coordenador do Departamento Internacional, Olavo Amorim, e pela Sub-Coordenadora do Departamento Internacional, Deborah Pontual.

Minchillo conta que para os estudantes de “Dartmouth College” a vinda ao Band mostrou um novo contexto do Brasil. “Para eles, qualquer contato é interessante. Eles gostaram muito do jeito das aulas no Colégio, da proximidade entre alunos e professores”, comentou ele.

“Esse evento mostra como o Bandeirantes é uma escola brasileira global. Termos um professor que lecionou no Colégio e hoje dá aula numa “Ivy League” nos proporcionou uma oportunidade única. Foi um evento muito diferenciado e ficamos honrados em recebê-los”, revelou a Sub-Coordenadora Deborah.

Powerful Women & Their Colleges

In honor of International Women’s Day, we are highlighting where some of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women went to college.

Think you have to go to a fancy college to succeed in business? Think again.

Of the 50 women on Fortune‘s 2017 list of Most Powerful Women, just eight went to Ivy League universities as undergrads. The other 41 attended a range of institutions, from large state schools to small private colleges. At least one woman on our list, Home Depot’s Northern Division president Crystal Hanlon (No. 41 on the list), doesn’t hold a college or university degree; she started working at the company as a cashier in 1985 and rose through the ranks.

That being said, the most popular college attended by the Most Powerful Women was—as it was in 2016—Harvard University. The four women on the list who received their undergraduate degrees there are: Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg (No. 5), CVS/pharmacy president and CVS Health EVP Helena Foulkes (No. 12), YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki (No. 14), and Mattel CEO Margo Georgiadis (No. 49).
