Just wanted to pop in and let you all know I'm still here. The program is very time consuming but I'm meeting some really wonderful people. The campus is a lovely grand place with winding corridors, crazy passages, secret doors. The buildings are brick with huge sweeping staircases where I can imagine students in the 1800's walking to and from class. It has that particular creek to the floors, soaring ceilings with plaster medallions and antique furniture and lighting. The classes themselves are very up to date with PowerPoint presentations, and up-to-the-minute market information.
Here I'm a one- or first year- we tease that we've entered Hogwarts with it's changing staircases. It was joked at our orientation meeting that we were waiting for the sorting hat- to tell us what we should be writing...
"Hmmm, this one is difficult," the hat would say. "There is much talent here, adventure, romance, mystery..."
"Not horror," I would whisper.
"Not horror?" the hat would mutter. "But there's talent enough for that as well..."
