I have not completely ruled out Oregon because I thought of their athletic program and some world famous runners have came from there, one of them is Steve Prefontaine. Also I looked down in the Southeast but completely ruled them out because it seems that in FL, GA, SC, or NC is that the colleges are either very good and hard to get into or they are schools not as good. Also I would not want to run 5Ks in 90 degree weather.

The University of Massachusetts has caught my eye such as UMASS Amherst.
Have you been able to research info about the cross country programs at any of the potential universities?

I actually attended UConn engineering. Let me know if you have any specific questions. Btw UConn and UR, I'd say UR engineering (indeed UR overall) is of higher quality. Rochester area is also much nicer to live in than Storrs, CT imo.
