I am wondering, does anyone has experience having a loved one who is a lifer and is getting or has gotten for college at a medium facility? And at which facility is that able? Or can't lifers never get for college?
Distance cannot and will not hurt a bond between two people that is based on mutual respect, trust, commitment and love. Love & relationships are always worth preserving, regardless of the miles that may separate two people.

Danville has college through Educational Justice Project.  My LO was able to complete an associate's degree, and continuing to earn credits.

Lawrence had college when I was there in 2015-2016.  Alot of them have it through Lakeland college but there are some that offer it through other colleges as well. The Lakeland degree is an asaociates in liberal studies.
