Flights from Columbus to Pullman on Alaska are actually pretty reasonable.
Every family is going to make these decisions differently of course, but I wouldn’t want to send any of my daughters across the country to go to college. I’d want them to be within a few hours of some close family member, in case there was an emergency - even an emotional one. I know I appreciated my parents being only a couple hours away when I was in college and going through a hard time!
But then, I don’t think that pickings are that slim at a school like Cedarville. My pastor’s sons go there, and they’re the kind of guys that I’d be thrilled if my sisters or daughters married .
