I have a bad case of campus envy. I went to a lecture at Northwestern this afternoon, and i hate to sound superficial, but it was really a pleasure just to walk through that gorgeous campus on a fall day. Fieldstone, ivy, fall foliage -- lovely! My own university certainly has it's own unique and intriguing je ne sais quoi, but it was nice to spend a little time in this other, more rarefied atmosphere. Oh, and the lecture was excellent as well.
