Two years ago I was on my way to work and stopped at a red light. The truck in front of me went to far out and started to back up. I honked on my horn, but they didn’t stop.

Selecting classes, buying books, and choosing a meal plan are just some of the steps students take to get ready for college. Parents, on the other hand, are worrying about how to pay for school, the safety of their child while away, and maybe even beginning to experience a little bit of empty nest syndrome.
