What did I learn? Vermont College is an amazing place where magic happens. People make connections with other students as well as faculty that will carry on long after graduation. The school feels like a giant family; no one ever feels left out and can join or not join in at any time. The faculty put themselves in the mix with the students-they stay in the dorms, attend the lectures, and play at the parties. I will miss this place terribly when I'm done!
Today's agenda: A few graduate lectures, a lecture by Martine Leavitt, author of Keturah and Lord Death, and readings tonight by some of the faculty, including MT Anderson, author of Feed (among others)-who by the way was dancing up a storm last night! Tonight we get the results of the "speed dating"! But honestly, I'd be happy with any one of the 15 advisors; they're all wonderful.
Tomorrow: Meet with advisor; FREE MORNING!!! Two whole hours with nothing scheduled! Yahoo!
