College Visits

Yesterday we went down the road a bit to James Madison University.  Daughter came back from an amazing Youth trip to Daytona Beach (Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin) with some new goals and observations. Now she has decided she wants to go far away enough from home that she can't be dropping in and making a mess here (hooray) but close enough that if she needs us, we can get there without too much delay. I'm not sure what all is going on inside her head, but at least she's thinking instead of running!

So ... JMU.  All I can say is that it has come a LONG WAY from when I was contemplating a university education in Virginia. I absolutely endorse her choosing this one if it's the way she wants to go.  Next Wednesday we'll visit another.

Here's a photo from JMU followed by a Louie Giglio clip that is fascinating.

I had that same motivation in picking out my college - plus it needed to not feel scary. UNC Greensboro was too big, the admissions folks at Wake Forest were too snotty, Mars Hill College was JUST RIGHT :) Two hours away from my folks so I came home every weekend, but felt like a semi-adult during the week.
