College Decision Day

No blogging today, as we were away on the last of several college visits.

With the National Response Date for college decisions one week away, it was finally time for our elder daughter to make her college choice this weekend.

I'm proud to say she was admitted to a number of fine universities, including Wake Forest University, Wheaton College, the University of Redlands, Biola University, UC Santa Barbara, and Sewanee: The University of the South. They all had unique things to offer; we joked it would be fun if she could attend each one for a semester! In recent weeks the list has been gradually whittled down for financial or other reasons.

Today she made her decision, and beginning this fall she will attend the University of Southern California (subject link). To celebrate her commitment today, she had the honor of ringing the rarely seen Victory Bell.

Fight on!

I wish her all the best in her adventure.

My mother and grandmother grew up in the valley below The University of the South - in Cowan, TN.

Thank you so much! She loved her visit in Sewanee. (They flew her out for a scholarship weekend in Feb.) It's beautiful country!

We have family who have retired to Western NC, which sparked some of our interest in universities in TN and NC. :)
