[in Just-]

March 3, 2017

As a matter of fact, I had a lovely spring break.  Thanks for asking.  I hope yours afforded you some time to crawl out of your rat rut onto a peaceful shore in a warm clime. If not literally,  then metaphorically.  Here's the first stanza of e.e.cummings; poem, [in Just-]


in Just- 
spring          when the world is mud- 
luscious the little 
lame balloonman 

whistles          far          and wee 
 

There's no way to deny it: mid-term is done, and now begins the final mad rush to finish. First years are faced with the terrible beauty of choosing their own courses unfettered from their parents wishes, sophomores approach their reviews with anticipation and dread, and seniors finishing IP and Capstone begin to age visibly. All teh while, juniors revel in the last few weeks of a great year! Yes, it's spring at Stamps. 

First years and sophomores, if you haven't heard from your advisor yet about meeting #3 (first years)  or the sophomore review meeting (sophomores, obviously), you will very soon. Feel free to write your own advisor to ask about scheduling your appointment.
