    I twice had roommates who went home just about every weekend. When my daughter leaves for college (in 5 years), I say she has to go at least 1000 miles away to make sure she doesn't do the same. She says she needs to go at least 2000 miles away.

    I still remember feeling that I wanted to get as far away as I could from home (Long Island) and still be in NY. Plattsburgh wasn't the farthest SUNY school (Buffalo State & UB were), but P-burgh was a good 300+ miles away. I can't say that I was pining to be home, but it was still quite an adjustment. One of my closest friends, a girl buddy, if you will, also chose PSUC and I hung out with her a lot that first year, especially that first semester.

    I didn't go home on weekends, just the usual breaks - Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc... But that very first time I went home, I remember feeling like I was a guest in my own home. I literally asked if I could get some food from the fridge. That wasn't anything coming from my parents. It was just me with that awkwardness.

    I'd say that all freshmen feel lonely that first semester, whether they articulate it or not. Usually, it manifests itself in less than constructive behaviors. There were a lot of "closet raised" kids that went absolutely nuts as freshmen, with their new found freedoms.

    With the nearest cities being Burlington, VT and Montreal, going to Plattsburg isn't really staying in NY.

    ....and I've been to both, during my time at PSUC. I had a lot of fun on campus, though. Played a lot of ping-pong, pool, tennis, Scrabble, chess, football, softball.... and I spent a lot of time with my fellowship group.
