AFTER THE SHOW PODCAST: Dorm Sweet Dorm. Nov 10, 2020 | After the Show, Heard it on the Show? | 1 comment Still paying for a dorm if your kid is doing all virtual classes? ? 1 Comment Michele on November 10, 2020 at 12:04 pm My son is also in his first semester of college. He is out of state and in the dorms. Of his 15 hours of class each week he only spends 1 hour per week in front of a professor. The rest is online. He has roommates but they don’t always do things together. He needs this time away to learn about who he is. He has also had to solve some problems on his own. He is doing well. He will come home at Thanksgiving for about 2 months then head back for spring semester. After 8 weeks he will have a spring break and then finish the semester at home back online. While not ideal we wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s a certain level of growing up and spreading his wings. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
