Bella, remember that you are going there not just to pursue an education/career.
But, its also an opportunity to be away from your family. You can't put a price tag on that experience...you will definitely not be the same person after leaving SD for awhile. I know your parents do not want you to be far....but you need to experience life away from the parents for awhile. Its different...its worth exploring. And although you are not the typical out of high school freshman type going away to college....it is still a good change, one that will help you discover several things about life, yourself, and what really matters to you.
But, enough about that......let's have a fun going away party!
