Matt and I walked around UCSD yesterday. He'll be going to graduate school there starting in the fall. We used the Stuart Collection as our guide, attempting to find each work of art marked on the map. We didn't find all of them, which is one of many good reasons to take future walks around the campus. 25 years ago, I was working at UCSD as a post-doc with CD Keeling at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Later, I would sometimes bring Matt to the office to sit or play while I was working. I never thought much about the possibility that he'd be a student here someday.
Matt will be a master's candidate in the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS). It's a 2-year program, so we'll get to know the campus quite well again.Matt will be a master's candidate in the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS).
