She is planning on the Honors Dorm, so will have some classes there-which
will help on the distance issue. As for a bike, I have heard of several
friends having horrid bike wrecks on that campus-not sure that she has the
coordination to ride through that many people. Hopefully she will go visit
campus next year with Adena and can get a better idea for this.
Thanks everyone and hope you all are having a great day as I type,
