I’m hopeful DS won’t swear under his breath for the next five years as he pays off his student loan he had to take for room and board. Thankfully, his classes are in person. It’s just everything else that has been very less-than. For a small school, it had a smorgasbord of cool on-property activities he’d only begun to tap into (men’s choir, intramural sports, political club, student musical) at the end of his first semester.
Meanwhile, the price went UP, but the services went down. The food has wholly improved since September when they had weeks of boxed meals.
On the upside, after they tested over 600 students on Monday and got ZERO positives, they have loosened up a little with groups in the dining hall and in resident halls. (It’s a super small school.) They still can’t do anything in the student union. I might cry again. The bookstore remains closed except for toiletries sold during certain hours.
Ha - I bet they find a way to open that puppy up for graduation weekend when parents are there! I’m fairly certain DS just wants to forget these two years, however.
The one salvation - the one I shut him up with when he starts complaining loudly - is that he met the most wonderful young woman and I see a wedding next year.
