I know when I was looking at Kent State that was a factor, you couldn't have a car as a freshman. They had a lot at the end of campus to park it at, so if I wanted to drive home on a weekend, I still had the ability, but not on a daily basis, and it seemed daunting at first, but knowing things now, it wouldn't have been a big deal once acclimating to the situation. I know my brother always tells Jordyn he doesn't want her driving back and forth to campus everyday on Grand Rapids traffic, especially the first 6 months, they have an excellent public transportation system, and she needs to acclimate to the different driving conditions up there compared to what she is used to down here.

Most of the schools Kayleigh is looking at are 3-5 hours away. One school we looked at does allow Freshmen to have a car on campus, but I am not expecting Kayleigh to own a car.

4 hours is even kind of a haul.

Ya, plane tickets are a big factor if you don't want to do a bunch of driving. Heck, even in Texas it seems like going from one side of the state to the other would be like going from Michigan all the way to PA or some similar thing, if she even wanted to stay in state. I think that is the biggest consideration for Jordyn, if she's not able to come home here at the holidays because Of plane tickets, at least she'll still be with her family.

University of Maine Machias looks like it has a great program and about 1,000 students. If only it was not nine hours away

Ah, I was just curious. My old boss' DD went to a very small liberal arts college in Maine of about 1500 students.

Mindy, where is Kayleigh's #1 pick if you don't mind me asking? I know there aren't a ton of schools that small, just curious.
