When the Pardee's over

Registration thus far:

Headed over to Undergraduate Affairs to pick up a registration form (never having gotten a PIN so that I could do it online). It turns out that I just caught them -- they're moving to a different building at the other end of the quad next month. Found out that I need to talk to Dean Robinson, but no appointments are available until next Tuesday, so I'll be back in town then.

Went over to find my advisor. The EECS department is still where it was six years ago, but has also moved since I was here. Found my advisor, my Old Undergraduate Advisor, and the Assistant Chair (who I had for my Data Structures class) in a hallway conference with a Ph.D. candidate in the same boat as me, needing a last-minute signature for One Lousy Credit (tm).

My advisor was busy, which got me out of the big nervous-making conversation I was dreading, so O.A.U. signed my registration form for me.

Headed over to the registrar, in Pardee Hall. Got to Pardee Hall, to find it entirely gone. There's a rather nice grassy quad where Pardee used to be, which uncovers the much nicer-looking Adelbert Hall. Addition through subtraction?

Cool! Isn't that a great feeling?

I'm registered too, but I'm still working on getting my tuition paid for. I know it will be; but in the meantime, it's just a little anxiety-making.

Heh
Seth is also back in school. He dropped out of his undergrad degree during first semester senior year, but rather than completing at Case he's starting over as a "senior" at Temple U. here in Philly. Funny that you're both starting now to finish!

linuxspice and I were going over the Immigration Canada paperwork on our way to meet solarbird, okoshun, and epi_lj the other day, and discovered that an actual master's degree is worth 25 points out of the 75 that we need to get in.

On top of that, my last work assignment just ended, so I suddenly have some free time to deal with all this.

Glad to hear you're going back -- I've not been gone that long and i very much miss it.

I wonder if that's the same Adelbert Hall I remember from when we had Science Olympiad at CWRU back in 1989...

That's the one -- but there was a major fire in 1991 that gutted the interior, so this is the refitted Adelbert Hall. Looks the same from the outside, though.

Yeah, I remember when they had the fire there. Just didn't know if they'd taken down the gutted building and replaced it or just refit it.
