college life

This month, students here and across the country are making their way to college campuses to begin the next important phase of their lives. 

Students across the country are getting ready to head-off to college campuses, many of them about to live away from home for the first time. Unfortunately, one of the new experiences they will probably have is getting sick, without mom or dad there to take them to the doctor, get their medicine, and nurse them back to health.

  As the spring semester starts on local college campuses, many first-year students won’'t be re-joining their classmates. And studies show up to one-third of freshman don'’t return to the same school for their sophomore year. Some transfer, some take a break, and many never return to school.
