I really love my campus. When we first got here and walked around the campus my first thought was "holy crap, it's humid" and my second thought was "preeetty campus." I'm sure it's not that unusual that the buildings on a college campus are made of brick but for some reason it just seems so East Coast to me and I've decided that the East Coast has cornered the market on brick buildings (I try to convince myself that we live on the East Coast and not the South -- it's not working). Since it's spring break and the campus is practically empty, I took the opportunity to take some pictures without 1) looking like a tourist, and 2) having random other students walking through my pictures. Also, I really only frequent about 1/3 of my campus because the History department's building is right next to the library which are pretty much the only two buildings I ever walk into -- there is a whole section of this school that I have never seen. Maybe someday I'll meander over to that portion but until then, this is the view I see everyday:
|This clock is my favorite landmark on campus.|
|Morton Hall is the building for the History/English departments -- most of my time on campus is spent here or at the library.|
And today, the first day of my Spring Break, I was at the library bright and early studying up on the Nixon elections -- bound periodicals from yesteryear are pretty awesome and they smell cool. Not that I was sniffing them.
