Anyway. It took me about an hour and 40 minutes to drive there. I had never seen the campus before. It is nice. I walked around...(mostly inside), ate a lunch at the student union and visited the book store. They have coffee shops all over the place. I was able to enjoy a cup of southern pecan from Fingerlakes Coffee Roasters. Yum. Needed the caffiene for the trip home.
The 2 women I spoke to were very helpful and encouraging. I'm very excited to get started in the program. If all goes according to plan I will start classes during the first summer session, which starts on May 19th. That will mean a commute to Buffalo twice a week for 5 weeks. I'm pretty confident about this because weather shouldn't be a problem that time a year and having done the trip once, I didn't think it was too bad. Then I will take 1 more course during the second summer session for another 5 weeks. I hope to get 9 credits out of 36 under my belt by the end of summer.
I was afraid I would feel out of place there walking around with all of those young 18-20 something students. But it wasn't that way at all. Yeah...most students were young, but I noticed many that looked older. Who knows...maybe some of them were staff. It doesn't matter. I saw so many people from all walks of life and all different cultures. I noticed a high number of Asian students. (I just thought it was interesting.) Just before I left, I visited the book store just for fun. I bought Audra a birthday present. It was a reading lamp that that can clip onto a headboard. She had asked for one because she likes reading in bed. She has to get out of bed and walk across the floor to turn off the light and Alicia complains about the light being on. I think she was happy with the gift! (That wasn't all I got her just in case you think I am such a dull mother)
