Last Few Days of Biola's January Emptiness

 In a few days time, the campus will once again be filled with students and professors (and a few more staff than now). For now, the few faculty who are seen on campus are wearing play clothes. The students who are here mostly have business to attend to or are athletes. The walkways have an emptiness that is not seen in daylight hours for most of the year. The lines in the cafe are shorter (or non-existent).

I will admit that I like the emptiness, but the purpose of a university is to produce graduates and knowledge. These two things require students and faculty, in addition to the staff that are here most of the year. The university is not the place; it is the sundry persons who have a stake in its mission. It is all of us and more than us.

So, I guess I like the fullness as well.
