The real world

image: Letters headerThe article "Uncommon Callings" by writer Kimberly Sweet and photographer Dan Dry (June-August/1999) was confirmation that real people do exist and undertake interesting tasks as part of the University's mission. The Central Shop, the greenhouse, Rockefeller Chapel, and the Ida Noyes Pub were areas that held particular fondness for me during my undergraduate years-keeping me in touch with the real world that counterbalanced the challenging academic environment. Thanks for sharing with us some of the non--academic areas and people who keep the U of C working.

I look forward to more behind-the-scenes insights-the person who roams the steam tunnels in the winter, the rock lab techs, and the polisher of the seal under Mitchell Tower. Please continue to provide us more views of the real world working at the U of C; even the more mundane tasks.
