A walk through campus at Washington Weekend
So I'm walking through the Quad and heading up the stairs past the art and music buildings on my way back to the Alumni House. There's a string quartert seated at the top of the steps and they're obviously playing a tune. I've got my iPod going strong but I decide to switch it off for a second just to give these students some credit. And who knows, maybe they're good and it's worth listening to. It is Washington Weekend after all, and we're supposed to be taking in everything the UW has to offer.
Well, turns out they were just starting up Stairway to Heaven and I didn't move a muscle for the next 10 minutes...except, of course, for the smile that crept across my face.
An hour-long stroll through campus today yielded some great Washington Weekend moments. I purchased a nifty piece of artwork from the School of Art, and at a great price too! I visited the Earth & Space Sciences bBuilding and checked out the UW Seismology Lab. It was exciting to walk past the signs that said "Restricted Access." I learned a few interesting tidbits about earthquakes in the Puget Sound region, too.
I also scouted the papermaking process at Bloedel Hall and generally soaked up the scene on campus. For my first Washington Weekend, I'm pretty happy with the way things are going. It's a lot of fun, and there's still one more day to go!!!
Tomorrow is the Huskies' spring football game and that should be fun. My prediction: Dawgs win!
