the observatory

One of my favorite buildings on campus.
Built in 1861.

Isn't college all about bringing things into focus,
gaining access to things you thought were beyond your reach,
and exploring the possibilities in life?

  1. Observatory: a place to go inside to be able to more clearly see outside one's self.
    Yes, colleges are extraordinary places.

  2. No way! College is about bringing all the things you thought you had focused out of focus! Zooming in, then zooming out, and realizing the pictures you take will never be an accurate version of the "real thing"!!! (which is why it's awesome...)
