HEMMED In – Campus Virtual Tour III – Snew? What’s New?

Today’s output from Blogistan Polytechnic Institute’s state-of-the-art HEMMED (High-Energy Meta Mojo Elucidation Detector) machine is a virtual update, or as I prefer to call it “What’s New”.

In our Welcome New Students, we (ahem) welcome new students and give them a tour of the campus so that they don’t get lost when classes start.

Our first tour took us through the Garden of Envy and the Genetics Lab and ended up at the Day Care Center.

Because this is a very big campus, we needed a second tour to show the rest of the campus including our Student’s Union and the HAWED Lab. And once again we ended up at the Day Care Center (as all good parents should).

                                                 My, how we have grown!

As our Chef Janitor Professor of Astrology Publisher and Founder NCrissieB noted in Monday’s Morning Feature: Happy Bippieday (Meta Monday), BPI Campus is about a year old. (I use the 13th, she uses the 9th … sometimes it is hard to agree on what one is commemorating ;-) ).

So I thought it was a good idea to hop into the BPI Hot Air Balloon and tool around campus for another Virtual Tour (# III in Romanese).

(And, yes, if you were wondering, there is no shortage of hot air on campus)

Being a virtual campus has its advantages because our building budget is only limited by whatever will fit in my PhotoBuckets.

Let’s stroll through the Rocket J. Squirrel Arches …

… and through the Mauna Loa Column into the campus gardens

On either side of our gardens are what we fondly call the Squarish Tower and the Roundish Tower.

If you can figure out which is which, there is an opening in the Dept of Geometry — apply in the Squarish Tower.
(Yes, that is a test)

The Physics Building graces the campus’ north side.

Right now the Physics Department is working on a Mountain Simulation.

I think you will agree that it is working quite well as this is the South Blogistan Main Campus.

No campus is complete without a Gargoyle or as we call it “Big Faced Guy With Mustache and Funny Helmet”

Quickly moving through campus (“how do you slow this thing down?”)

Until we arrive at Venerable Hall … named after the venerable Venerable Family

Now I am pretty sure that this photo does not belong here.

Normal School? Er, not exactly. ;-)

Happy Thursday to everyone and fist bumps!

The BPI Campus Progressive agenda:
1. People matter more than profits.
2. The earth is our home, not our trash can.
3. We need good government for both #1 and #2.
4. MEET YOU AT THE STUDENT UNION! Last one there buys coffee!!

Return to HEMMED In three days a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for more output from BPI’s state-of-the-art HEMMED (High-Energy Meta Mojo Elucidation Detector) machine.

You can follow HEMMED In on twitter at JanF at BPICampus.

  • JanF

    All this and still free tuition. Cheap at half the price!!

  • NCrissieB

    Okay … I lost it at Venerable Hall. I’d held it together until then. Now I’m going to need a squeegee….

    Thanks for this, Jan. Clearly BPI has grown a lot since I last got out of the mail room….

    • JanF

      The Stately family had already committed their endowment to the Normal School. Thank goodness the Venerables stepped up.

  • addisnana

    Oh my goodness! I’m headed for the squarish tower. I have always liked math. I also think my inner square would feel at home there. Thanks for the tour!

    • JanF

      The roundish tower would work also if you can calculate pi.

  • Julie Gulden

    Normal School…ya sure, you betcha
    I guess I never asked, must one take gym class here? If so…buh bye!

    • JanF

      Never. We do need to be hosed down occasionally.

  • Julie Gulden

    I’m excused. Overheard someone say, “she’s all wet.”

    • JanF

      That would be our Dean of Women (from Campus Tour II). She is the arbiter of campus fashion:

    I am laughing so hard, Jan. This is fantastic. The Business Building looks perfect to me. In fact, it may be my favorite!

    I love the tour. I hope we keep growing so we need more of these!

    Hugggs!

    • JanF

      That is actually the business building at Another College, believe it or not. Sometimes these things just write themselves.

      • winterbanyan

        Oh, that’s even funnier!!!! Talk about descriptive art. We should have built Wall Street to look like that. We might have been warier.
