Test: Take Two

26 May

Driving back from my hiking spot today I passed my Alma Mater, that is Washington University in St. Louis. I stopped to take some photos of the school where I spent seven years of my young adult life. Bachelor’s Degree-4 years, secretary in the On-Campus Housing Office-2 years, and Master’s Degree, one more full year. I don’t get over that way very often, and I am always startled by the vast growth that takes place on that campus. It is a very wealthy private university and has always prided itself on its nickname: the Harvard of the Midwest.
Here is the main administrative building Brookings Hall which sits atop a hill looking out over Forest Park (where I hiked today, another post).



The last photo is Blewett Hall, which houses the music department. Yep, my main hangout for five years.

      Thank you. It seems strange being there after so many years. When I am in Munich this summer I will be visiting two of my friends from my Washington U years. They both were music professionals who spent their entire careers in Munich. Barton from East St. Louis was the pianist with the Munich Philharmonic and the Bavarian Radio Orchestra until his recent retirement. Lucy from Columbus, Georgia is still singing with the Bavarian State Opera though she will also retire this year.

    I love going back to my old university campus. Even though it’s in a small town in Ontario it has a very Ivy League feel to it with all the old buildings and mature trees, now mixed in with more modern buildings and concrete common areas.

      It feels strange. I always feel like I am traveling back in time.

    You’ve made it then! Perfect that this is practiced prior to your trip! Great photos.

      Thank you. I am more hopeful in getting the job done without spending too much time at it.
