Knowing that tiny space with cinder block walls is going to be your kid's home for the next year is kinda depressing.
It's hard enough to let go, but when you have to release them into a smelly, loud (did I just hear beer chants down the hall? It's 2pm!), and, let's face it, not exactly the most hygenic atmosphere, then it can be a bit scary. Here are some links I love to help with that transition:
