The majority of FirstPoint USA staff were given the opportunity to go out to America on Soccer Scholarships. During their time in the USA they were privileged enough to play at some amazing facilities, and visit some beautiful campuses. We asked our staff which universities they visited had the best sporting facilities and the nicest campuses:
Andrew played for Cincinatti, Ohio, and says the best facilities he has played at would be at Stanford University. He also was so impressed that he chose also Stanford to be the best Campus he visited.
Nicole Montoya & Barry Neville
Both Nicolle and Barry played for Binghamton University, New York, and both say the best facilities they played soccer at was Penn State University. Nicole would say the nicest Campus she visited whilst living in America would be the University of Notre Dame, but as our American Girl has been spoilt for choice over the years, she feels she would have to also put the US Naval Academy in her answer too. Barry chose West Virginia University as the best campus he visited.

JP went on a soccer scholarship to Hartwick College in New York and says the best facilities he played at were at Penn State University, and the best campus he has visited was The University of Washington.
