Thursday son #3 graduated from Washington and Lee University. It's a beautiful campus with a rich history. In some ways it's a world unto itself. He had a good four years there and truly benefited from the small close community. He enjoyed fraternity life as a member of Sigma Nu and graduated with majors in math and science. At the end of the summer he will be off to Ohio State for graduate school.
I didn't visit son #3 often during his four years at school but still I'm going to miss Lexington. It holds a special charm unto itself. The tuition payments, however, I won't miss. While this son graduated with twice the undergraduate debt of his brothers, he received a fellowship for grad school and should graduate with half the total education debt.
