Ten random things: February 20

Ten colleges owned and operated by Kaplan Higher Education Corporation:

  1. Maric College- Lake Forrest
  2. Hamilton College- Cedar Rapids
  3. TESST College of Technology- Towson
  4. Hesser College- Portsmouth
  5. Thompson Institute- Philadelphia
  6. San Antonio College of Medical & Dental Assistants- McAllen
  7. Texas School of Business- Friendswood
  8. Denver Career College
  9. Andover College- Portland
  10. Southwest Health Career Institute

Last night I was looking at the Wikipedia entry for Cedar Rapids, and I saw Hamilton College listed among the colleges located in the city. I had never heard of it, so I clicked through the link, and reached an article about a Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. There was nothing in the article to suggest that they maintained a branch campus in Cedar Rapids, so I Googled "Hamilton College Iowa" and found the correct one. Then, having nothing better to do, I wrote a stub for the Hamilton College in Iowa and edited the Cedar Rapids article to point to it. My first Wikipedia entry! Figures it would be about some random topic about which I had no particular knowledge.
