First off, let me thank everyone for all the wonderful information that has been posted so far. This is my first forum experiance and so far I have soaked up some very good knowledge.

Ok, now for the reason I am on here pestering you fine people for information! I am a 23 yr old, single male who is wanting to relocate to Denver, Co from London, Ky (southeast). I live in a pretty small town (<6000 people). I have two semesters of school under my belt thus far (soon to be 3 semesters at the end of May). I have lived in the same city all of my life and I have always wanted to live somewhere else. I started looking at schools that were away from Ky and I stumbled on Bel-Rea after talking to a friend of mine and expressed my love for animals. She suggested that I call and talk to someone about the school. Thus far the contact I have talked to (Donna) has been extremely helpful and expressed a much interest in my relocating to Co.

This is a pretty big step for me, obviously, so I would like some input from anyone who would like to help me out. I inherited a small place on the farm that my family shares, which is where I have been living for a few years now. I want to go to Bel-Rea as a full time student... but I know that coming from a low income family that I will basically be on my own. If anyone has seen Bel-Rea or experiances their teaching methods first hand PLEASE give me some feedback. I plan on flying out to Co and staying a weekend in the summer to see what I can gather of it myself, but I fear I will be a fish out of waters so to speak. There is a school closer to where I live (2 or 3 hours distance) which offers the same degree as Bel-Rea, however the price out here is higher (remarkably). Not to mention I am not sure if training at a Ky University would look as good as a degree from Bel-Rea. I have limited experiance in the field of animal care but it is something that I would really love to pursue. Most of my jobs around here have consisted of customer support, technical support, or just good old back breaking labor. I guess I am most concerned with the stuff I do not know. I live comfortably on my current pay, but its still under what most consider a 'decent' paycheck. I am sure I could afford an apartment, even if i didn't have a place of my own... but it would be a new experiance.

in short, I really feel drawn to Co... Like it is a step I am supposed to take in my life. I am just scared I suppose. Any help or information that I could get would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Wolf Man, welcome to C-D, hope we can help you.

While waiting here for a reply on this one, have you checked the Pets forum for info that may be of help?

I can move this to that forum is that's a better location... let me know.
