High school girl dating a college guy?

I met this awesome guy who is actually friends with this boy I used to date (they go to the same school and actually lie in the same dorm!) We went to a party at his school together and he asked me out to go on a date after into boston with his friends, we have been texting quite a lot and I think I realllly like him. the only problem is that his school is a half hour away and he actually is from maine! which is like an hour away. would it even be worth it to try dating when I'm only going to be leaving for college next year anyways? and if we were to date, would it be hard to get together living far away?
