You missed the best of it - "The Bridge to Nowhere", for a start
The newly built Grad Chemistry Building.

Did you ever find the underground tunnel system? Probably blocked off by your time.

Interesting note: the original plan, after building the various buildings, was to only pave the vary largest main pathways. Then, student foot-traffic, as shown by the wearing of the grass, was to be used to determine where to pave next. And parking/parking stickers were free. The bullet-proof (actually, frustrated angry student proof) glass had not yet been put in the bursar's office lobby.

They never got around to the paving part - so one year a mass of students brought cups of mud to the bursar's office and put them, en masse, on the steps leading up to the University President's (Toll, at that time) office . . . to share the student experience.

And the year before I started I saw the Grateful Dead concert, last show, 4th row center . . . and . . . and . . . and . . . I'd love to be back there and do it all again.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
