Tomorrow and Friday is the Smith Open Campus for admitted prospective students. Daughter and wife are in transit from Florida as I type. They are pretty excited-- me too.
D gave me the Open Campus "Schedule of Events"-- WOW, lots to do. The schedule looks really organized with lots of overlap in event choices for the prospectives students plus events that would appeal to parents. The STRIDE students are running a research poster display in the p.m. day #1 with a breakfast and research panel day #2 - very nice. I note a Presidential Address will get things going early on day #2 (Friday). The day #1 evening closing event is a "Capella Jam." hmph- I've never been to one of those, And I wonder just what it is-- song I would guess??
Well, I hope this is it for Daughter. She is carrying her "Confirmation to Attend Smith" card and my check for $400. Assuming all goes well, I believe we have found a wonderful college where she will be happy and challenged in completing her undergraduate studies.
We appreciate the input from the many wonderful and smart CC posters-- Thanks. David
