It's official, Pickle has decided which college she will be attending this fall. After many long months of deliberation, she has decided on California State University at Long Beach. I am happy with her choice for several reasons. First of all, it has both of the majors she is interested in -- which are Criminal Justice and Forensic Pathology. (You go Girl!) I am also happy because it is only 93 miles from home. That sure beats the 2135 miles away that Purdue (ah-hemmm, AJ!) is.
Pickle will still get the full college experience of living in a dorm away from home, but is only a short hour and a half away by car. I must admit, I do find myself breathing a sigh of relief knowing that she won't be terribly far away.
We took a drive up today to get a good look at the campus, and it was as beautiful as I'd remembered seeing it several months ago.
Pickle looks happy, doesn't she?
I was surprised at how much greenery there was on campus.
