I'm from Connecticut, and although I haven't heard back form UConn yet, I'm almost positive I'm either going to end up going there or to Central Connecticut State University. I live in a small town on the shoreline, over 1 hour away from Uconn and about 45-50 minutes from CCSU. However, my sister has a house that's about 25-30 minutes away from both schools and I do have the option to commute back and forth from there and save a lot of money.
However, the weather can get pretty rough so I'm not sure how I'd pull of driving to school on days like those.
I've also been reconsidering my commuter plan because I've missed out so much socially in high school, I want to grow as an individual and socialize more, which I might miss out on as a commuter. I'm not saying I'm a party animal or anything, I'm not really a party person anyways.
So can anyone help me on this one? It'd be awesome if someone who's experienced both could answer, but all replies are welcome!
