On Thursdays I teach classes from 8:00 in the morning through 2:30 in the afternoon -- without a break. Actually, I go from 8:00 to 11:05 and then have 25 minutes to go to another building on campus for a class that goes from 11:30 to 2:30.
The building I go to has an interesting structure in front of it. It is a reddish grid with a fading gold "O" on it.
The golden "O" was the symbol for Golden Circle. This was a grouping of buildings that housed incubator businesses on our campus. The idea was to give small businesses a place to start and then, once they were sort of established, they would go out on their own. I am not sure if that program still exists. In any event, my class is in this building.
Does this sign give you any clue as to the group of students I meet?
Yes -- I teach a funeral law course for students who wish to own and operate funeral homes. It is a very excellent program and students often have bachelor degrees before enrolling in this program. You can see the classroom looks pretty normal.
Until you look this way! Heh!
The first time I stepped into this classroom I was a bit ... taken back. The room is used for a funeral merchandising course.
I sort of wondered why one of the coffins was missing. But I didn't ask.
You get used to it after a while. But every time I step into this classroom, well ...
Sort of makes you appreciate being alive!
Thanks for stopping by.
