Sent my wild weed off to college with the understanding that if he treated it like he did his senior year of high school and did not make his grades we'd have to pull him out of this college and send him to a cheaper college or community college or worse - to work! HA!

I know you had some big worries about this, and I'm so glad your son rose to the occasion.

Many of us here know the fear during the term, and the relief when we learn our our CSs' final grades.

bravo to your boy and your parenting!

I'm more the mom who will raise the bar with every success... or bring up the next goal or puddle in their road I think they should jump :)
is he going to summer school, intern, working?

did he ever bring his girlfriend to your house for that slumber party?
does she share his major?

any plans for a family vacation?

no girlfriends staying here, even for a slumber party and if they're invited to stay, they get their own room.

Online takes good discipline!
You must be proud!
Will he live on campus?
Would he need more than a bike?

My youngest finally gave up his motorcycle when he moved to Texas .I'm encouraging a bike too.
