The Influx Begins

This afternoon while I was waiting for the bus, I saw a couple of undergrad-looking guys, one toting what looked like a box containing a router and the other some other kind of electronic doohickey in a Toshiba box, and knew beyond a doubt that the influx has officially gotten into high gear. The students have been traipsing around campus all week, actually. There are more every day. No longer does the campus even have the pretense of feeling deserted, dead, or de-populated; it actually never felt that way all “summer,” regardless of the urban myths I’d heard about such a utopian state. I guess it’s almost time for the insanity to resume, alas.
