I'm interested in hearing opinions re: Meliora Weekend.
We are parents of a current freshman. We live in the Rochester area, so we see our son as often as he would like. (However, not nealy enough for mom.) Despite our best efforts, we were not able to get into any session that really interested us. To be honest, from what we were able to read on-line there weren't many. It seemed like most were more appropriate for alumni, and I get that.
We signed up for some things, but ended up canceling. Upon further reflection, we really did not see what all the hype was about. We decided to visit our other college student that weekend instead.
Any remorse is quickly squashed by the realization that not much intereted us on the Meliora Weekend line up.
