Monday At TCU
We left home about 6 a.m. and after taking several wrong turns and backtracking, we got there about 10 minutes before the 8 a.m. check in. After we registered, they had a huge breakfast served to us. I had a scrambled egg, cheese and potato burrito with salsa, along with some pineapple and honeydew melon. It was the best breakfast burrito, I've got to try making these at home! Anyway, halfway into the burrito, I somehow managed to flip my plate over splattering eggs, potato and salsa on a few of the people around me.
They had us divided into groups assigned to student tour guides and we visited several areas around the campus including the dorms, library and rec center. I really want to go back to school. Completely awesome.
They had 7 different classes, from which we could choose 3. They were very informative. Around noon they had a great lunch buffet with some key faculty speakers, and then we continued the tour of the campus.
We were all divided up again depending on the student's major. Casey is thinking about double majoring in marketing and e commerce, so we met with the Dean of Business. Around 3:30 we attended the closing reception...where there was more food and some student speakers.
Casey and I had such a great time. No matter what is going on around us, Casey makes everything fun. This kid is so friendly, always talks to everyone and just has the best sense of humor. There's never a moment I'm not proud of him.
The only negative thing that happened today was when they quoted the yearly cost of room, board and miscellaneous...$34,000. Please look for my new blog 'How To Contribute to Casey's College Education', coming soon!
