Our campus visit to U.W.G.B. last month was an eye-opening experience:
*Twenty years changes things. A lot. For my first semester at UWGB, I wrote a check for $495. Kyle's tuition for his first semester (assuming he for-sure chooses G.B.) will be approximately $3,300.
*Walking ten minutes (from dorm to classroom) is beautiful on a nice, fall day. I'll bet it's a beotch in February. Note to Kyle: Purchase parking pass.
*At one point, someone in our tour asked how much the parking pass at UWGB costs. The admissions rep replied, "How much to you pay for parking now [at your high school]?" and the answers varied dramatically. For example, Kyle said, "Ten bucks a year." A young man from Eden Prairie, Minnesota said, "$350," and his dad confirmed. Seriously?! They pay $350 per year for their kid to park a car at his high school? Is it me, or is this absolutely insane?!
*During the tour, we visited my former place of employment, the UWGB library. I couldn't resist telling Kyle that Mr.4444 and I had a "really good time" (once) in a private study room at said library. Since I never talk this way, he was taken aback and severely traumatized. (I LMAO!)
I've learned a lot through the process of college applications, etc. If you ever have questions, feel free to ask me, but the person I went to is Chris, Dad of Divas, because he really knows his stuff! Thanks, Chris!
