College Days

I visited my old college campus recently and had a good time walking around and reminiscing.  Here is some of the campus beauty.




This travel post outside the art department reminded me of Jess because she loves to travel to different places.



The Canadian geese on the roofs of the buildings looked as though they were watching over the campus.






This is the building where I took my stenography classes.  Do you remember shorthand?  My first job after college was a stenographer.


This is a piece of artwork I liked that one of the students created.


The campus bell my husband used to ring when he was 10 years old.


This S building reminded me of Sheri.


Nel would appreciate this, as she loves books.

More art pieces.


My old campus is very nice, and it was good to visit again.


All you students....
study hard
keep learning
I admire your dedication.

What a lovely campus. It's fun to take a trip down memory lane. Liked those geese on the roof.

Purple Flowers said...

You have taken so many beautiful photos! I especially love that beautiful flowering tree. And the travel post is so much fun to look at and see all the miles in the world. It makes me want to go to Greece all the more. I use to take art history classes in an old brick building that had a turret. It looked like a mini castle. Thanks for sharing and have a happy weekend!

Oh wow! What a gorgeous campus and look at the Wisteria!
Those cute geese are keeping watch and look so whimsical, reminds me of a story book!
Thank you for sharing some beautiful memories and campus, sweet Sheri!

Your college campus is so pretty! And the wisteria is stunning. I'm not sure I'll have a campus to visit in the future. My university is moving my discipline to a brand new building, way down the hill from the old one. No memories for me there! I hope you have a good weekend!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

It's so nice to re-visit places where you have spent time and I am sure there are so many memories.
The photos are wonderful. Where did you go to college at?
Thanks for sharing this great post.
Have a terrific weekend.

It's nice to go back to a place that holds good memories and still looks so beautiful. I love going back to the library I went to as a child. The old buildings are so much better built. Have a good weekend my friend!

LOL- I was the best stenographer and typist in our small class. Did you take the Gregg Shorthand method? I used it for several years for work. What a fun visit to your old campus. xo Diana

Susan said...

That was a great tour of your former campus, Sheri. Where was it?

I LOVED the rainbow photo. That was perfect.

Sometimes a walk down memory lane does us good. Susan

Noelle the dreamer said...

First shot is absolutely stunning!
Great souvenirs and yes, I remember stenography!

Leslie said...

Hi Sheri,

Your photos are beautiful and I can imagine the feelings you had walking through the campus. It's amazing how life goes buy so quickly. I'm glad you were able to take this tour! xxleslie

Beautiful campus. I love to reminisce about my college days and it's fun to go back and visit. I took some shorthand in high school. I thought it was fun.

Have a good weekend!!!

francis said...

you gave me some homework to muse about .....
sitting in my garden today Spring is here looking like summer !
My dearest friend Saskia visited me this week and she told me I have to be patience and be happy with one day at a time in my garden .
Just go and sit with my coffee and MUSE .....
and do one thing ....
Musing about my years as a student would not be on my list !
I did not have a good time .
Maybe I can use the warm summerspring sun to think about it the way you did .
What would I see ?
Happy weekend dear friend

Imogen said...

This must have been such a wonderful lovely experience. I just adore anything like this which brings back memories. Love the beautiful flowers and all the character. The big bell is pretty amazing.

Good morning dear friend....

I see I am very late in visiting everyone, but I am here to enjoy your thoughts. I too love going back to my campuses, and to now see as an educator, the lives that will go on as I have, to discover even more, outside of school.

That wisteria in your first photo is STUNNING! How is your spring coming along? Ours is getting underway, very slowly.

Peace and much love to you, Anita

Hi Sheri, visiting your college campus must have been a very memorable experience. I love the wisteria in bloom and the tulip on its own. And wow shorthand? I remember learning it as well. Oh memories😊😊

Hope you have a good weekend my dear friend.

Hugs,

Aida

Hey Sheri, it is alway fun to take trip down memory lane. Stenography and typewriters went hand and hand, both have now fallen by the way side! Glad you had a good time on your visit, Laura

What an interesting campus. The wisteria is stunning and the art work too. The travel post is such a good idea and appeals to me - as you know I love travelling!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Sheri,

How lovely that you had a trip back to your old Campus and thanks for sharing. The wisteria is so beautiful - we have just had to cut one out at our place because it was taking over everywhere.
Must have bought back happy memories going back there.
Wishing you a wonderful April
hugs
Carolyn

Thank you for taking us along on this most beautiful tour. It's good to go back to the places that have molded and shaped us, isn't it. I love these gorgeous pics...and the inspiring words at the end. I'll pass them along to my chickadees. ;)
