Your profile says that you went to LSU...

It should say, and I'll have to double check, LSU-Shreveport. An LSU system/satellite school. Not LSU-BR (Baton Rouge) as we called it at the time. Opposite ends of the state.

I want better for our kids, less stress and a more complete university experience than I was able to get while working and going to school.

Who says working while going to school isn't part of the complete experience?

If I ever regretted any of those "sacrifices" of luxury, it evaporated this Spring when our high school senior out volunteered how stressed out these same friends were because of trying to figure out how to pay for school, and that he APPRECIATED our paying for it.

Sounds like you did a good job.
