    I second this. A student of mine went there, had the best experience of her life. So many opportunities for travel, internships, etc.

    Who’s going to tackle Saturday with me?

    Morning, all! It's been a rough week. Dd was confronted and threatened at school (new student w/violent background), said student was suspended for three days. First day back, brought a group of like-minded people to "knock her head in." Dd is fine, student is being transferred out. I"m proud of dd, handled it all well, was praised for being the "adult" in the situation. The instigating incident? Dd's drama skit in class was praised by teacher, used as an example of what others should do. Just wow. Because of the background, we filed police report, applied for restraining orders... To do: coffee, devotional groceries, errands for my mom laundry grading, reading Lemon chicken, salad for dinner Have a great day!

    Difficult School Year

    As someone else mentioned, could you try working with the other two at the college library on those days? This is what our friends did when eldest had dual enrollment classes.

    Weight Loss Accountability Thread :)

    So, it has been a year since my diagnosis of late onset type 1 diabetes (autoimmune related). I have steadily gained weight since starting insulin treatments. The doctor said my body is overcompensating for my pancreas working overtime. I would really like to get back to wearing my old clothes, lose 25 pounds. I just got a gym membership but I'm so tired in the evenings. I know I need to stop by in the afternoon after work or it will never get done. We eat low carb, with one cheat day on Friday for pizza (no dough for me, just toppings and salad). Just really want to lose this weight. My goal is to increase water intake, increase cardio and weight training, keeping a food and exercise journal.

    So how was fall semester for the college kids?

    Ds had an interesting semester at his cc. He finished his last season of water polo, did decent in most classes, As, Bs, one C, and a D in one class. I had posted about the one class previously, where the professor quit in late October, cleared out the grade book and lab hours. New instructor took over, ds did not do well with him. He was required to learn 500 new terms (ASL) that the previous instructor did not teach; all were on the final (2 weeks to learn). The new syllabus did not match up with what his final grade was. He is in the process of appealing the grade. Hate the process, because the instructor took offense to Ds's email questioning the grade. "Too bad, should have tried harder, etc." At this point, we'll settle for a C, as long as he does not have to repeat the course. If it's not fixed, fully plan on pursuing this. Will charge for time spent in class, travel costs to and from every time the previous instructor was a no show, etc , which was pretty much all of October. Before she left, ds had a high A in the class. Hopefully, things will work out.

    Do you think this is ethical and/or sensible?

    Usually students that require services through the learning services get priority at registration. I would definitely talk to someone... Also, not in terms of being ethical but something else: By doing this and not attending, wouldn't it affect your relationship with future attempts at registration? If students from your school/program have a history of signing up but not attending, I would think it would jeopardize the opportunities for future students in terms of flexibility/arrangements.
