Juniata College

I love the campus of Juniata College, where I am teaching freshman composition. It's in Huntingdon, which is about 45 minutes south of State College. It's a beautiful drive, although the combination of a 2-lane road and slow PA drivers sometimes makes me crazy.

Here's my office






And this is an outside view of Quinter House, where my office is. A few weeks ago, I held student conferences in the rockers on the porch.


My classroom is in Good Hall, which faces the main quad of the campus.


And this is looking up the sleepy little street that runs right through campus.




And, finally, I convinced one of my classes to pose for a picture. This is my "11:00" class. They're my favorites. :)


ps - sorry about the weird formatting. Blogger is making me crazy...

Melba,
What an awesome place to teach! I love your office, it is the epitome of a liberal arts professor's office. And the campus architecture--it looks like the 1800's. Thanks for sharing, it's a great way to stay in touch. Hi to you and Sammie from all the Spokane Linscotts.

Melb -- it's so fun to see your office and college. It looks so charming, like a place one would just love to teach and study! I'm so glad that you're enjoying it!

I love your office! The campus is beautiful. Are you just dishing out the A's? How could you not from an office like that? And how could the students not be inspired by such beautiful surroundings?
