new england visit

I am currently in New England visiting a prospective graduate school.  In between meetings with professors, lunch with current graduate students, and sitting in on classes, I had a few minutes to walk around the main campus with my camera.  This is one of my favorite shots that I took, but it is hard to choose just one favorite.  Since I have a few, maybe I'll post a bit more frequently for the next couple weeks.  (No guarantees, though.)

The visit has been quite successful and I have really liked what I see.  And even though I came down with a nasty sinus infection right when I came, I've really enjoyed myself.  And my host student has been wonderful, even staying with me at the local pharmacy for over an hour trying to convince them to give me my prescription.

I'm sure I'll share more about my visit as I continue to post pictures, but for now I need to get things ready to fly out later today.

Any guesses as to what school I'm visiting?  (Some of my readers know already -- NO CHEATING!)

frozen benches

I apologize for my tardiness in posting -- the past few weeks have been quite busy. Despite cutting back on classes this semester, I seem to always be doing work. But I have two pieces of excellent news:

I got into an excellent graduate school.

I am leaving right now to go pick up my new mac.
