OK, we went for "Parent's Day" at CSUChico. In the real world it would be "Homecoming Weekend" but since Chico (in their infinent wisdom) decided to discontinue their football program, it's not. Homecoming, that is.
Three years ago we did the whole parents BBQ, dorm parents meeting, etc. Not ever again.
There is an awesome car show on the downtown quad that we stumbled upon her first year, so that is now our focus. We pick her up, and head for breakfast. In the past we've done Jack's & Morning Thunder. This year we went for Golden Waffle. It was okay, but Jack's is better and faster.
We walked around the car show, then had the requisite collegiate run to Safeway (her grocer of choice) and WalMart. Afterwards, I cooked her and several friends dinner at her apartment.
Not much travel info, but since this is our second child through Chico State, I can hopefully answer any questions...
