I have a very shy daughter that has to decide between CU Boulder and SDSU.
She did an overnight orientation at CU Boulder and left in tears. She now feels scared and wants to be closer to home (we live in northern CA).
SDSU- would be a 40 min plane ride or 8 hour drive. CU Boulder- in a different state, 45 min drive to airport and 2 1/2 hour plane ride.
I think CU Boulder has a lot more to offer and beautiful school. But I've heard so many students dropping out after the first semester because of home sickness. She also has a best friend going to SDSU which would make it a lot easier to have the confidence to join social clubs with a friend.
Do you think being in the same state and shorter distance and having a friend would really make a difference for homesickness?
We need to make a decision ASA, so any advice would be much appreciated!
