  1. I think it's wonderful, God bless you for that, but I personally can't afford it. I wish.

    When adding the tuition+room+meals, it comes to almost $900, and I still have to add the air round ticket to that, +another $300 to $400. A total of about $1,300 just to be on the safe side of the budget for the week.

    Is there any restaurant or fast food restaurant around the area where we can safely go walking?, even in the late afternoon for dinner? or do we need to rent a car for that?

    Thanks for any feedback and God bless!!!

  2. There are some options such as double room, dinner only that can reduce the cost. (I believe there's a refrigerator in the room, so you can keep some food for breakfast and lunch. Not sure. You have to ask about this to make sure.)

    I think the cost of Colloquium is very reasonable. I saved money throughout the year just for the Colloquium. I cannot miss it. I truly look forward to it every year.

  3. I have attended in the past, and am having financial difficulties this year.
    There was no fridge in the room, if I recall correctly.
    I never found any fast-food, grocery, whatever options in walking range.
    There is a Starbucks on campus, (not great hours, IIRC.)
    One of the other attendees when it was in Chicago showed me she had brought a weeks worth of canned iced coffees, V-8s, granola bars and applesauce cups.
    Even with the usual 25 dollars per suitcase, I may try going that route this year.

  4. There is a fridge in the room and the dorms are wonderful. The meal package is an amazing deal: delicious and far cheaper than buying piecemeal. There is grocery in easy walking distance. The colloquium is not in Chicago but rather Pittsburgh. In all, this is an incredible deal, priced exactly at cost and run entirely by volunteers.

  5. Hmmm… I don't remember having a refrigerator in the room – that doesn't mean there wasn't one there of course, I can be pretty oblivious.
    The dinners in Pittsburgh last year were EXCELLENT.
