Internet Security and Firearms. Either way, helping you keep your muzzle clean. No extra charge.
Don't forget about FAFSA, and grants and scholarships!
I wasted a lot of my time and Dad's money so let me offer your son some unsolicited advice:1. Get 8 full hours of sleep a night. Professors don't like snoring students.2. Self-same professors think theirs is the only class you are taking. When pressed limit yourself to chapter summaries and vocabulary lists.3. Librarians are your friend. Treat them well.4. Caffeine is NOT your friend. Drink only in the morning.
I feel your pain my friend. We have 2 in college right now and one that will be a senior in high school next year.Yes, I feel your pain.I hope you like mac & cheese and raman noodles for dinner... (kidding of course but it really is expensive).
What's he looking at studying?
You didn't have kids so you could make money off of them, did you?Heh. That being said, if I can give you a bit of advice...Take part in helping him choose a major, and refuse to pay for it if it isn't something useful. You'll be doing both of you a favor.By "useful" i mean a major where there are jobs.Construction management. Aerospace. Engineering. I would be careful about general studies, women's studies, psychology, philosophy, and even things as general as a simple "business" major, because all of those things will not lead to a better job out of school these days. The days of "a degree is a degree" are over. I have a friend who has a philosophy degree. he works retail, still, 12 years after graduation, because he can't find a better job with his degree.
Here is some better advice,If your son is not personally committed to his major, he will not make it through college.And show him this: http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/worklife/10/27/cb.what.major.pays/index.html
