A Room with a View

The university I teach at has a very urban setting, completely different from the university I attended in northern California, which had a vast campus complete with wide green lawns and ivy-covered buildings.

During lessons I always wonder what it must be like to live across the street and know that your house is possibly being ogled by hundreds of students trapped in classrooms. I know I'd spend a lot less time on the balcony if I lived there!

Love this. The university I attended was on Beacon Hill in Boston, I was always trying to get a glimpse of home life across the street, lol.

That is *so* true. I'll take the somewhat secluded green campuses any day ;)

Hahaha, never thought of that!

Hey, does your Dean (or whatever they're called in Italy) know you're taking pictures for your blog when you're supposed to be teaching? :D

Nice post. I like a lot the universities with beautiful buildings, wide green lawns and many paths to walk through.

To tell the truth, it took me a while to get over the feeling of teaching in a fishbowl!

I'm late to the show, I know...
I'm curious what Nor-Cal school did you attend? I graduated in '92 from SJSU.
