We've heard it said that numbers tell the story. Today, with humble promotion, we passed the 2,000 readers mark. Thanks.
Also, U.S. News and World Report today issued its annual report, "America's Best Colleges." It reported that IU's Kelley School continues to offer one of the best experiences for undergraduate students, including those who want to start their own companies. Kelley is No. 2 in the Big Ten, No. 7 among publics and No. 11 overall.
IU moved up three spots to 30th among public universities. The Bloomington campus' study abroad programs were recognized for involving "substantial academic work for credit -- a year, a semester, or an intensive experience equal to a course -- and
considerable interaction with the local culture."
Anyone who has followed this blog will understand why that's true.
Also today, a good friend and editor, Rex, gave me fine advice when I asked him about this, my first blog. He said simply, "shorter."
You're probably familiar with the proverb, "A picture is worth a thousand words."
With that in mind, here is a link to an Indiana University gallery of my photos taken on the trip. You'll find it online at http://newsinfo.iu.edu/asset/page/normal/5347.html. It's also a link from the title line.
