Well the college tour whirlwind started yesterday with our first visit to Gardner Webb University.
This is a private,Christian,Baptist-related university where Jacob took swimming lessons as a young
boy. I never imagined I'd be taking a tour of it when he got old enough to attend. I have to admit I
was a little nervous, oh who am I kidding A LOT nervous while Jacob was excited. This was our first
stop......personalized parking spot.
After checking in we got to watch a short video about the school. Video finished and the Assistant
Director of Admissions came in and spoke with us. Jacob got a reality check when he was asked
about ACT and SAT testing. We haven't done any of this testing because up until about 5 months ago
he wasn't going to college. My concern about testing was if there were any kind of accommodations
for his special needs. I came straight home and started researching and YES there's various
got to take our tour on the golf cart. Beautiful campus and our guide was very informative. We've
attended several Christian Services Organization programs at the student activities building but never
toured the entire campus. Good thing we got to ride the golf cart because I'm not sure we'd have
everyone with us the whole tour.
prayed with us. She told us how to drive back to the student services building because no trip
anywhere with Jacob is complete without a shirt or souvenir.
