CB...no, no, no! It's not breakfast *or* lunch, it's breakfast *and* lunch. After you've finished the packing, a good lunch will seem like a good idea. At least a last stop at Herrell's if not lunch at Spoleto, the Viva Fresh Pasta Factory, the Eastside Grill, or Sylvesters. (Have dinner at one the night before and the choice is a little easier...if you didn't go to Osaka or India House.)
I have a feeling the room and the closet will be a contiguous mess with exams and all - even more frightening we have not been invited into her room on our last two visits due to mess and I know what her room looks like at home. I think we are already giving up on the storage and will just provide her with masses of the jumbo clear baggies in hopes that we can at least tell stuff from trash
The Commencement schedule is just for seniors staying for senior week.
As for move out day, I believe the dining halls are open for breakfast, but I wouldn't count on it. Remember, the work study kids go home too so they don't want to generate extra dishes, etc. Plan on stopping for food either in town or on your way home.
Well, it's also for anyone else who happens to be on campus that week. I just don't know how stringent they are on checking to make sure you're approved and I don't know/don't remember if *anyone* can have brunch on Saturday. But I bet it is open to students who are moving out. I wouldn't want to move out on an empty stomach!
(The kitchen is staffed by student workers during Commencement, but these are students who are hired to work Reunion. Only a few dining rooms are open because it's extreme consolidated dining.)
I have a feeling that we aren't going to be running across campus to the dining hall in that case - looks like I will be loading my husband up with food and I'm guessing there will be a trip t local burger
Flayvors of Cook Farm has the BEST ice cream in the area. You need a car to get there, so most Smithies may not know about it. I'm not a Herrell's fan, though my husband is. My D is not wild about Herrell's, either, although I know she goes there.
I'm probably as sad as my D that her Smith years are ending. Although we've been celebrating the end of tuition payments since our last one at the beginning of March, we feel as though we haven't done everything we wanted to on our visits there.
MWFN, there's always going back for friends' graduations in a year or two. D asked that we send her Ivy Day dress, which she's going to wear this year. TheMom said it should go to the cleaners and so I took it to the better of the two we use. When I picked it up, I held it at arm's length and looked at it dubiously and said, "Boy, I sure I hope I can still get into this." The guy behind the counter looked at me strangely.
As for payments, we have no problem. Two more months and the first $10K of our loans will be paid off. Whee!!! This is going to take a few years. Thank goodness for MEFA loans.
