Day at Ursinus

Image hosted by Photobucket.comToday, we went to visit Ursinus College in (strangely enough) Collegeville, PA.

Our son has been accepted there and may be attending in the Fall. I, however, had not yet seen the campus, so the guys took me for a look-see.

What a beautiful place!

Everything was in bloom and the campus was preparing for graduation tomorrow. Along with the flowers everywhere, the campus is itself an outdoor modern art museum.

The architecture is a good smattering of old and new buildings. There are lots of nice facilities, and from what we saw and heard, a great attitude toward learning and an actual interest in education for education's sake. It's a lovely place to spend a few years and
it seems to be everything a small liberal arts college should be.

Our son, with his many and varied interests, is quite pleased, as are we.

No actual work done today... nice to have a day with the guys. I did meet with some of my lampworking friends last night to share some ideas for future shows, etc.
