|My classroom door!|
This semester I am taking two graduate courses. One course is a graduate introduction course to the major so I really have to have it to meet future prerequisites, which translates to a very complicated Monday commute. If you thought a three hour one way commute was nuts, you’ll now think I’m seriously a bit off. After teaching, I will leave campus at 2pm to catch a 2:30 train that will get me to my town close to 5pm. At that point, I’ll drive in rush hour traffic to reach the university around 6pm (if all works as planned) for my 6:30pm class start time. About 4 hrs one way. Yep. But you do what you have to do, right?!?
Although I’ve grown up in this area, I have never walked the campus. I have no idea why because this place is beautiful!
Last week was my orientation. When I left the building, I noticed fluttering above my head. I had to stop count at about bat #30! With beautiful old buildings and breathtaking grounds, the bats have the perfect environment.
Of course, their mascot is the Spiders! While we walked around campus, my fella pointed out spiders that were incorporated into the landscape.
