Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

You know, when we had kids, no one ever told me that they’d grow up and leave home!

Well, daddy’s baby girl is leaving home, matriculating at York College today. It’s a smaller school, but York is very highly rated as both a good buy and providing a first class education:

“A First Class Education at a Price You Can Afford” according to Barron’s Best Buys in College Education

York College is also:

  • ranked among only 198 “Best Buys in Higher Education” by Barron’s Best Buys in College Education
  • ranked #13 among the “Best Regional Colleges in the North” by U.S.News Best Colleges
  • ranked among the top third of “100 Colleges Worth Considering” by The Washington Post
  • included in the Princeton Review’s Best Northeastern Colleges
  • among 284 colleges and universities committed to help low-income, first-generation students according to College Access & Opportunity Guide
  • among the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools embracing America’s veterans as students according to militaryfriendlyschools.com

Naturally, I’m more worried about her leaving for college than I was when she left for basic training! Fortunately, York is very military friendly, because she’ll already miss a day of classes on Friday, September 9th, because she has to report to her Army reserve unit at 1100, for a three-day weekend drill.
