You have all been very kind reading through my word-laden posts. Here is a post that is almost all pictures. I can now call this “my University” since I received my formal temporary appointment from the President yesterday (and I could read my name in hangul on the certificate!). I hope the pictures convey how beautiful it is here.

This is the main administrative building. My office is on the fourth floor.

This is my office, complete with desk, table for six, chairs, a bookcase, computer, two large windows, and air conditioning. Faculty here buy their own printers - I’m still working on that one.

This is the view from my office. This is the central square. The building across the way has many uses, but I use the cafeteria. To the right is the library.

Here are two views of the humanities and social sciences building, where the American Studies (Miguk Hak) Department is located, along with my classroom. I love these trees.

This is my classroom, complete with computer and LCD projector. The computer interface is completely in hangul, but microsoft office is so standardized, I navigate completely by habit, rather than language.

Here are two views of Pierson Hall, the oldest building on campus. The building was originally built in Seoul in 1915 when the University was first founded. At that time it was the tallest building in Seoul. It was moved, brick by brick, to this campus.

I’ll post more pictures of campus another time, but that should give you a sense of the place.

    You are very lucky to be in Korea. I spent a year studying Korean and then went to Korea serving in the U.S. Army. I was stationed in Pyeongtaek. That was in 1971. Your pictures show a lot of change.

    Be with the people and enjoy. It takes about six weeks to pick up the words and customs. Kim Chee is the best!
    I will be reading all your posts. They will make me relive my year in the land of the morning calm.

    I left St. A’s in 1969 and I can assure you that Koreans accept people from the Hill. My daughter Maura is also a St.A’s grad.
