Last Saturday, my husband, son #2, and I toured Bowling Green State University, the first of many college tours planned over the next few months. It was "Junior" day at the college and the place was packed with wide-eyed eleventh graders getting their first glimpse at what college life might entail. They got to tour the whole campus including dorms (the dorm we toured was not good for anyone with the least bit of claustrophobia).
My son wasn't too interested in the pop culture booth (whose kid is he???). For him we stuck to the medical professions and the history department... The college is about three hours away from home, so a bit further than I'd like (couldn't he just live at home??? Is that too much to ask???), and has its pros and cons, but it's on The List. I've started keeping a notebook for all these visits. And I made a special note of the pop culture major--just in case son #2 changes his mind...
If you could go back to school right now, what major would you choose? Would it be the same? Or would you change it?
