What’s Missing in College: Mom

By Curt Owen

Let’s all take a moment to be honest with ourselves. In part, we take the mysterious steps into college because we know we’ll enjoy our new-found freedom and independence. But college is missing one big necessity that helps us get through our days. She goes by the name of “Mom.” Fortunately, there’s Momba to step in and help!

A former dirty college kid on financial aid cleans up

Laundry Piling UpOnce upon a time, I was a dirty college kid on financial aid, who was awake at all sorts of weird hours of the day, as my former roommates will attest. Incidentally, I also often exposed myself to a lot of unnecessary danger by wandering campus and neighboring areas, especially when I needed essential items like toiletries and/or clean undergarments (you can probably guess that I wasn’t super religious about doing my laundry).

In my late-night college wanderings, I saw that I wasn’t the only one awake. Whether for studying, partying or just hanging out, people away at school are awake at all hours of the day.
