I started blogging in early 2005. I'm not even sure what platform I used back
Here are the pictures from my excursion (except for the Bush school... I was much too busy to take many photos there). I am just linking to the pictures rather than including them directly as they are larger files... I am much too lazy to convert them.:
SIUC Clocktower: SIUC is all about this clocktower. It annoyingly chimes a lot, but looks nice through the bare trees.
SIUC Modern Art: This is some art on the campus that I thought looked neat, so I photographed it while waiting for my meeting with the Political Science Department.
SIUC Faner Hall: This is the home of the Political Science Department. A cozy, austere building... how''s that for somewhat hard to comprehend. This tops the list of my PhD programs. I could spend the next 4-5 years in these walls.
The Clinton School: It looks even better than in the pictures on their website. It is an old railroad station converted into a school. The instruction and faculty exist on the bottom floor and President Clinton''s LR office is on the top floor. It is an impressive structure with a great history. If I go there, I will most likely describe it more detail later. You can see the document depository behind the brick building. It houses all of Clinton''s documents in five underground stories--the bottom one is still top secret and guarded for national security reasons.
Clinton Library: Unfortunately, I did not get to go into the library. It is feet from the school and shares the parking lot. Someday I will go... perhaps in May or June when I am LR for cyzygy with City Year.
City Year Little Rock HQ: CYLR is on the third floor of this building. It is still stark, but inspiring to visit.
