She got to travel to Mexico and be the interpreter for her boss and others, as she was the only one to understand Spanish.
I think you would feel just fine.......
They go out to the mall and the town has a lot of shops. It is a University you know.....and the tuition and costs are darn good......
Its just straight off of 80 too.......
.....good luck.....enjoy!!!
thank you.
that helped out a lot.

i'm glad theres a mall not too far away.

Sure you could find a party every day of the week at BU, just like many other schools. Its all about how you manage your time. You can have time to party and have time to study.
From someone who went there for 4 years, graduated, passed the CPA exam, and has a successful career, I would say that I received a pretty good education.

Dear, your mother and father do NOT want you to do that. Unless you are going to Bloomsburg on scholarship, it is going to cost them (or you) a great deal of money, waaaaaaaaaaaay too much to be less than committed about your education. Besides, last I checked, legal age is still 21 in PA.

Tell that to my peers here at King's. I often feel like an outcast because I seem to be the only one who shuns binge-drinking and partying in favor of studying. Also, what's with wearing the same pair of sweatpants around everyday for a week at a time without washing them? Is that supposed to be sexy or what? LOL! Wow! I may just be the driest future CPA in the history of mankind, and I'm only 20! LOL!

Yes, but your liver will thank you. Nothing at all wrong with having a great time at college; Lord knows I did, but there is a time and place for everything. Regret is a b*#@*&h when it's the last semester and you realize that you've been in a stupor for the better part of 4 (5? 6?) years and missed out on experiences because you were hung-over.
