22. Thanks I remember my dorm food

at Purdue as being passable but not spectacular in the early 1980s. Both our state schools are like having every meal at a Golden Corral. The offerings are simply staggering (or at least when the campus visits are scheduled?). I was blown away by both Iowa and Iowa State. It appears that Purdue has gone to that same model with a facility very similar to the ones at Iowa and Iowa State in front of my old dorm (the food service area in the old dorm is currently an uneasy conversion to a study area with desks placed there - I suspect they will retask the space eventually).

I am very happy if she gets her first dorm choice. Food right next to her dorm. Mechanical Engineering building right next to the food. It is perfect.

Of course we can afford it. She has already shaved three semesters off her four year degree and has the potential of graduating in two years if the courses line up.
