Have a thread about one of my step-daughters, but couldn't find it to update everyone.
My oldest graduated H.S. as an Honors student, and had several schools interested in her (though she wasn't interested in them- because none had her degree program). She was initially set on R.I.T. up in Tude's backyard, but -finally settled on one of the two in-state schools that offered her program- USAO. She got a full-ride academic scholarship that pays tuition, room, and 15 meals a week. There was additional FA funds that should cover the books. So long as the grades are decent, the scholarship stands until graduation. It does not cover the Summer term, but good grades gets a tuition waiver, but room and board will still have to come out of pocket.
Moved her into her dorm today. All entering Freshmen had to report today, and will have a week of seminars and meet and greets before classes officially begin the following week.
She's going into Deaf Education, with dual minors in Math and Drama. Tried to get her into Robotics- as she was the president of her HS club and the team's web developer, but she wants to go into Deaf Ed more.
Tears were shed by a few when we left the campus...
