We were fortunate that she was able to take her car with her during her first year. This not only provided an obvious way to get home but also a mini-storage facility for supplies. If your son or daughter is not permitted to park on campus, the college can typically direct you to parking spaces for rent around campus. I want to share what we did to ensure our daughter was prepared, in case she was ever stuck at school without electricity or needed to get home in a situation where her main route was blocked/not available.Vehicle:
