|Iowa State is known for football, statistics, and agriculture (or so I assume). |
So you assume. Ah.
|It is not known for physics. Add to that the fact that Ames is a soul-enervating ****hole (yes, I've been there) and I'd say Dr. Gonzalez comes out ahead of his opponents. |
Grove State is known for its physics? Or astronomy?
Well, compare ISU Physics & Astronomy here, where, BTW, Gonzalez is still listed, versus Grove City here.
Among other things, ISU's department has a grad program, and GC's does not.
Frankly, I wouldn't relish living in *either* Ames, Iowa OR Grove City, PA, but lots of really good universities are out in nowheresville towns. And by any rational measure, ISU is obviously a better institution. (Which is why they had a normal, rigorous tenure process typical of a major American university.)
This was all hashed out here last fall, Robert.
