WASHINGTON - America's last major war - Vietnam - produced in 1968 a long-shot presidential candidate in protest, Democratic Sen. Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota. He failed to win his party's nomination, but his challenge was instrumental in persuading President Lyndon B. Johnson, the commander in chief of U.S. forces, not to seek re-election. One of the most noteworthy aspects of the McCarthy campaign was the senator's recruitment of tens of thousands or more of students on college campuses around the country in what came to be known as his "Children's Crusade."

They've traipsed across Bucknell, wandered the halls of Gettysburg, hiked around Saint Joseph's and driven past Dickinson. If it's Friday, this must be Loyola -- as in Loyola College in Baltimore. Having driven six hours from their home in Manchester, Conn., Barbara Bosch and her 16-year-old daughter, Joanna, are walking around their sixth college campus. Just another half-dozen or so more to go. Like hundreds of thousands of their counterparts across the country, the Bosches are scouting for prospective colleges this spring.

Checking out colleges with your teen-ager can be a costly undertaking, but Cliff Kramon has come up with a quick, cost-effective way to take tours of schools across the country and around the world without ever leaving your home. Kramon works as an independent college adviser in Tenafly, N.J., helping students decide what college is right for them. As part of that business, he regularly videotaped tours at colleges around the country for his clients to watch. Once his library became large enough, he decided it might be a business of its own. Called Collegiate Choice Walking Tours, it offers videos of student tours at 410 colleges around the United States and 11 in five foreign countries.

After visiting six college campuses in four days, high-school junior Shaen Robertshaw had reached his limit -- a full day and two campuses before the tour was scheduled to end."At that point, we gave up and drove home," said Shaen's mother, Susan Lewandowski. "When they've had enough, it's time to quit."Lewandowski knows those glazed looks all too well. She's an admissions officer at Smith College in Northampton, Mass., where high school students and their families come from as far as California and abroad to see the classic New England women's college and other campuses nearby.

The search for the right college involves lots of research. The most expensive and time-consuming aspect of that research may be the most important -- the campus visit.A New Jersey company, Collegiate Choice Walking Tours, offers a low-cost alternative: videotapes of campus tours from more than 300 colleges and universities in the United States, plus a handful from Canada, England, Ireland and Scotland.The unabashedly amateurish videos follow a student-guided campus tour from start to finish.

In five years, Ed Hottle took Gallaudet's football program from a moribund club team to an NCAA Division III winner. Today, he will be named the first football coach at Stevenson University in Owings Mills, where he hopes to do the same. "I'm honored to be the first guy," Hottle, 37, said Tuesday. "It'll be a colossal undertaking but I look forward to the challenge." Stevenson has scheduled a news conference Wednesday morning to introduce its coach, who beat out three other finalists for the job. The school expects to field a developmental football team in 2010, with plans to begin intercollegiate play the following year.
