My daughter is going to start college out of state in about two weeks. She will be approximately 14 hours drive time from Folsom. We have toured the campus, bought the necessary supplies ( I think, she is living in a dorm). I think we are set.
My question to all those who have sent children off, how did it go? She is so excited to go, but I think she is going to be homesick, though she swears she won't. She is young (17, but will turn 18 in Sept.), but I just hope everything will go good for her. She already has been in contact with her future roommate, and they seem to get along. As my oldest child, this is new territory for me. My husband says it will be just us with the hard time as we leave her after her first day of school.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
