    My kid registered for it. We were at SUNY last week for a tour, and my kid made the the decision to go to SUNY. I'm told that Preview Day will be a chance to learn more--see more.

    It's a long trip for us, but my I'm guessing my kid wants to buy another t-shirt.....

    How long is it for you Neonzeus, and where do you live?
  • NeonzeusNeonzeus Registered User Posts: 1,234 Senior Member
    We live in Pittsburgh, so it's a 4-hour trip. The kid's asleep for most of the drive, and always says "Wow, we're here already?" Drives me crazy.. I'm thinking about doing Greyhound someday, so I can sleep too.

    Are you planning on going on 3/31? The summer orientation is pretty good too. They put the kids in the dorms overnight, and try to do orientation for kids with similar majors at the same time. (My older kid made friends at orientation who are still friends, even after he transferred to pursue a major not offered at SUNY)

    No, I can't attend March 31, since I am a little farther away; about 6 hours. During the summer, I will be attending an orientation, I just don't know what date.

    And you may want to look at airfare instead of taking a bus. I know for me (Newark-Buffalo) would be cheaper than taking a bus.

    Integra, I noticed on another post that as an OOS student they offered merit aid to you. May I ask if you need to maintain a 3.0 to keep both of your scholarships? Thanks.
  • IntegraIntegra Registered User Posts: 44 Junior Member
    For my OOS scholarship I think I only need to stay OOS. But for the merit, I believe I need to maintain that 3.0 GPA.

    Oh, really. Then this is a pretty good deal. Thanks Integra and good luck!

    Anyone going to the Honors breakfast?
  • CJTaKoZCJTaKoZ Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
    It's a luncheon. :P

    And yes, I'm going.
  • NeonzeusNeonzeus Registered User Posts: 1,234 Senior Member
    CJTKoz: My kid got an invite for a 9:00 a.m. reception with the University Pres, not a lunch? But he'll be hungry at lunchtime too!

    My S go to the 9 am affair too . Do you know if the Honor students have their own dorm ?? their own floor in dorm ??? I hear SUNY is tight for space .
  • NeonzeusNeonzeus Registered User Posts: 1,234 Senior Member
    The honors students and athletes are in Governors, which is closer to the classrooms. We'll get to see them on 3/31 -- they have a model room in a suite, which is pretty nice.
