OUR BABY GOES OFF TO COLLEGE - UNIVERSITY OF SAN DIEGO
UNIVERSITY OF SAN DIEGO
5998 ALCALA PARK
SAN DIEGO, CA. 92110
Blessed to have our baby going to the University of San Diego. A perfect match for her we all agree.
The campus is spectacular and sits on a hill overlooking Mission Valley and the Bay. When you walk the grounds here you cannot keep saying to yourself that "this is beautiful". Everything seems to be in place with a sense of the past with the architecture and a sense of the future with the young student body who seems to me is 80% woman. We feel safe here and oh so comfortable. Our Daughter is even more comfortable with many friends from Hawaii living near her dorm. She moved into the dorm in a weekend filled with lots of shopping and return visits to Costco, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Lowes, Trader Joes, Home Goods and various Malls. Set her up with a tv, refrigerator, microwave and several fans because it was so hot in her room. No A/C in her dorm if you can believe that. After a few days we stocked here refrigerator and set up a small pantry near her desk where she has snacks, water and canned foods that can be heated and eaten in her room. To my surprise our Daughter fell in love with her little room. She added decorations and photos to the walls and now calls this place her palace. Absolutely loving USD and the college life after just one week.
Difficult for me to let her go but I can see she is ready to begin a new life far from Hawaii.
