I was giving a talk at the university, which I guess has over 30,000 students, mostly from this region. The university itself is pretty ugly...I had to think about how my mother likes to walk around college campuses...not much scenic walking here. It's like a concrete jungle--a product of 1960s, early 70s "modern" architecture. Unfortunate. But the leaves were turning and out back behind the campus you had some nice views of the surrounding countryside.
