Just dropped by Vassar College last week--comparing it to the Smithson map, I'd say it needs a redesign. I can't believe you actually put science buildings near the center of campus! How bold, useful, and not liberal arts-like.

Well, Vassar was originally just Main Building and the old observatory; everything else grew up around it organically. It is, of course, the most beautiful campus in the world.

Hey, my ten-year reunion's next year! Holy crud.

It certainly is beautiful. I am a big fan of the Elizabeth Bishop benches.

But mostly, I just wish my alma mater had a No Such Organization : )

Back when I was in the NSO, it stood for Nonhuman Students' Organization, which I still think is a much better name.
