My son, heir to all we possess and hold dear in the world, just left here to attend a Frat Try-out, I mean a fraternity rush party. My husband and I attended a rather large state school in the heart of the storied SEC. GREEK LIFE was huge there, and yet we managed to eke out an education, sans the Greeks.
Now that my first year of college has ended, I can officially confirm that it does indeed "fly by." This year has offered a smorgasbord of emotions, experiences, disappointments, discoveries, challenges, and achievements. Although I was given the cliché "college is the best time of your life" spiel countless times before coming to school, the truth is that no one can accurately predict the course of these formative years.
