I got my masters (in English lit.) at the U. of C. many, many years ago. I'd love to hear about your experiences there. I lived in the old Shoreland hotel right after it had been converted to a dorm. I then moved to the Broadview, which is a stone's throw from the Museum of Science and Industry. I used to love roaming through there (and it was free!). I enjoyed your webpage. Great quotations!
