Where Are You Going Next Year? (Collegiate 2022)

Post by Arras Agility »

As is tradition:
It's that time of year again where people start to hear back from transfer applications, grad school apps, job offers, landlords, etc. and make plans to go places. Here is a thread in which current college players or members of the college quizbowl community can post where they'll be next. Please post only if you have something definite to share, though that includes things besides "I am going to x and such school for [Degree]"; more general notes on moving to a new metropolitan area as a non-student/non-player/employee interested in continuing to staff or do outreach, etc.
For me - over the summer, I'm moving to Seattle for work. I'll be available to staff around there or for occasional opens.

I’ll be attending Kent State for a master’s in Library Science (happy National Library Week, btw). It’s an entirely online program, so I will almost certainly remain in Columbus for at least the next two years — I don’t really intend on playing anything besides maybe some trash tournaments here and there, but I’m happy to help staff or otherwise provide assistance to quizbowl events and programs in the Central Ohio area as my schedule allows.

I'll be starting a PhD in Religions of Mediterranean Antiquity at Princeton next year. I'd be shocked if I play, but I'll be around to staff things in the tri state area.

I will be attending the University of Michigan Law School beginning in August. I will likely play quizbowl there.

Barring any last minute switcheroo, I'll be attending Indiana University for a history PhD come the fall. I don't plan to play

I will be moving from my current postdoc at Université de Montréal to another postdoc at (confusingly) Université du Québec à Montréal. I'll probably continue my current practice: not really checking the forums, but staffing, writing, or playing on occasion when someone DMs me to ask.

I am graduating from the University of Minnesota in May and (hopefully) securing a job, probably in the Twin Cities area moving to Madison, WI to work at Epic. I plan to continue playing opens and potentially staffing local tournaments.

I'll be starting a PhD in Biophysics at UC Berkeley in the fall. I'm planning to continue playing quizbowl but not at the same frequency as I did as an undergrad. I'm available to staff tournaments in the Bay Area as well.

Come this fall, I will be moving to the Santa Fe, NM area to start a research job with the Department of Energy. I am happy to help with staffing tournaments in the area if the southwest circuit ends up being revived. Either way, I plan on staying involved through editing/writing and attending the occasional open when I can.

I'll be in Los Angeles for at least another year and am happy to staff collegiate tournaments in the area. Hopefully will get to play another open out here in CA at some point - hmu if you want to team!

I'm excited to announce that I will be going Brown University next year for my master's in CS.* I already go there, but I just wanted to put that out there for all the people wondering, "Where will Walter be for his senior year of his undergraduate degree and his masters degree? Will he make an unexpected transfer?"

*this does not affect my undergraduate status

I'll be going to Cornell for law school. I'm not sure how much time I'll have, but I'll try to staff/play depending on my schedule.

In August I'll be moving to New Jersey for a research assistantship at Rutgers. I probably won't be involved much in quizbowl, but I am open to helping out at the occasional tournament.

Moving to London, Ontario in ten days to start an econ PhD at the University of Western Ontario. I hope to continue playing QB, or at least staffing in the area.
