Another accomplishment!

Dear daughter made her final decision on her choice of college the other day!  I think it was actually a no brainer.  When we revisited last week, we were able to have a very helpful meeting with a faculty member, had lunch in a cafeteria and learned more about the students and the vision of the university.  

Miami University, Oxford, Ohio 

picture perfect campus

home of the Miami RedHawks and the No. 1 overall seed and top-ranked ice hockey team (but they lost to Boston College in the Frozen Four

I'm relieved that this is done.  Even though we started late with the college search, it still seemed like it took forever to find the "right" school.  Hopefully this school will be a good fit!

I think I am more excited than she is...

What great news, Barb! Please congratulate her for me--I'm sure it is a relief to you all to finally have that decision made. Hope she is as happy there as my niece and nephew were :)

Congratulations to you - oops - your daughter! ;-) It's a big milestone and it's great to get that big decision made!

That is great news Barb! My son is thinking about Miami also. We haven't made a tour of the campus yet, but will next month! I think the hardest thing for these kids is to actually decide where they want to go. My son wants U of M in the worst way, but he's finding out with the tours we've taken that it's not the only game in town. Glad that your daughter finally decided. It's a milestone and a big decision.

Great news. Miami is a wonderful school. Many friends and co-workers have gone there, as it is relatively close to where I live. Nice town/nice campus, so I've heard.
Thanks for you comment on my blog about your FB experiences. I thought I was the only one a little "creeped out" by the whole thing.
