I know we have a few first time college kids here as well as returning students. How are classes and the balance between fun and studying? How are mom and dad doing?

Classes here do not start until a week after Labor Day. This weekend is move-in weekend for the first years.

Today is day 5 so it's kinda early - but ds19 says he really liked 5 of his 7 classes; haven't heard back yet on philosophy and the one 0 credit class his dept requires (doubt they've met; it's a 'portfolio review')

Nicki & Tim have been back to school for two weeks now, and they both seem to be really enjoying their classes a lot.

Lots of work, no real time for fun.

Technically, d1 is two credits short of sophomore standing.

I have one of those 'over studiers' too - Jason. While I like that he works hard I wish he'd relax a bit more. Like your dd he feels he has to read every single word of every single assignment. He had his first med school exam a coule weeks ago and realized later that day that he'd made a mistake on one question. Turns out that was the ONLY question he got wrong but that's the one he dwelt on. And then there's Justin who I don't think has ever sat down and studied for an hour at a time. I always said if only he could have a bit of Jason's focus and dedication and Jason could have a bit of Justin's laid-backness they'd be perfect!

Chris ( DS 18--freshman at community college) only had one day of class last week, so this was his first full week of classes (he has classes Monday-Thursday).
