Hello all - my daughter has been accepted at AAU Fall of 08 - Illustration. She & I are both very excited for her. She's only been ready to go to college for the past 2 years of High School (weren't we all?)
I was trilled to read the reviews here about the school and it's teachers. However I'm growing concerned about the housing situation now. We live in PA and so she is traveling a whole world away for school and seemed only logical for her to sign up for Housing and Food Service for her first year. She has plans to room with a friend who will be out there after the end of Spring Semester.
She has not been assigned a residence yet. But her first choice was International House, followed by Clara Stevens and last choice was the Commodore.
Also she signed up for the food plan because she didn't want to have to worry about cooking for herself but be able to focus on her classes and getting used college life.
So truly what is so bad about the rooms? We don't live in anything fancy here in rural PA.
And the food, what is so horrible about it. I mean this is girl who doesn't totally hate High School cafeteria food and could live on Ramen Noodles and Swanson Meat Pies.
So be honest, this is for posterity after all
