So, daughter #2 and I completed our college visits today with “Accepted Student Day” at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. When we got home, one of the first acts was for her to put a Goucher College Gophers sticker on the 2004 Jeep Liberty we bought a few days ago (no matter that I never expected to be able to do such a thing). What does that tell you?
Wheaton College, Connecticut College, and Goucher College are all fine institutions. Having gone through about a dozen college visits in the last two years I feel as though I have become somewhat of a minor expert on the subject, and I can say that our daughter would have been fine at any of the three. But, arriving home after our last – repeat last (until I – Lord willing – go through the same process with our youngest in two years) – college visit, one of the first things she wanted to do was to put a fighting Gopher sticker on the rear window of “her” car.
Guess it’s official.
