We visited our freshman S, 1100 miles away, once this year. He came home for Thanksgiving, Xmas and spring break. He will not be home for Easter (his choice). I know the weekend we visited he could not wait to "dump" us at 10 or 11pm so he could meet up with friends. Then he was exhausted the next day when we dragged him out of bed at 10am. LOL. We probably will not visit again, but if we do, H has said we will travel someplace from there and not hang around the school/city he is in so that we are his main focus and not his friends. I think he feels at college it is his space and he does not want to share with us. Fine with us.
