Having been in this community for a while, I never realized how many college students there are here. So, to those who currently go to a university/college, where do you attend and what can you tell me about its linguistics/language programs?

I'll use this as an introductory post. I'm Kyle, a rising senior in high school. Obviously, I have a love of language (so much that at times it surpasses linguaphilia and borders on linguamania), writing, and linguistics. Unlike others, I have no specific interest in these areas, as all parts--from morphological typology to the Pirahã language--are fascinating to me. I speak English and Spanish fluently, though I've studied various other languages (Cherokee ftw! + ASL, Japanese, Greek, and more) at one point or another, and being the nerd I am, I've even constructed my own.

I'm in the middle of college searching, as you could probably tell, and although I have a pretty good idea of where I'm applying, I'd like to explore other universities' ling/lang programs (the College Board and many university sites are painfully inadequate). Any information would be great. =)

Lastly, to those of you who haven't heard of it, www.lingwiki.com is an awesome site -- it's like Wikipedia, 'cept for linguists/linguaphiles. I encourage you to join and get involved; I'd really like to see the site grow as a resource for all people with an interest in language.
