Ephs in Beijing

Thanks to Prof. Sam Crane for sending this in:

I thought Ephblog might like this photo, taken last night (Beijing time), Wednesday, March 24. It includes alums Thomas Jones, Jenn Lee and Joe Kauffman (and his wife Angie and little girl Avital); current students Jackson Lu, Cadence Hardenberg, Jessica Harris and Caroline Ng; uber-parent CK Shen (father of alums Clarissa, Geraldine and current student Loretta); and me. I was visiting in Beijing to, among other things, give a talk to the Beijing Academy of Social Sciences, and Jenn and CK organized a dinner at a local Italian restaurant (a nice break from the ubiquitous, and quite excellent, Chinese food). CK brought the colors that we displayed throughout the evening. A good time was had by all…

Overturned Bike

Can anyone name the quad this is in? Hint: The oldest building of the college is located  on it. It used to hold the chapel, dining hall, classrooms and dormitories. One day, when the President of the the College was giving a lecture, a student rode a horse through the class. He then decided it was time to expand…

Lansing Chapman Arena

As an ice hockey player, I spend a lot of time in this rink over the course of the winter. Does anyone have any interesting facts about the history of the rink and what it used to be like? I have a couple in mind that probably made it VERY cold to play in…

Camp Williams

The climate up here has been absolutely wonderful for the past few days – perfect for shorts and t-shirts with nary an angry cloud to be seen. Nights have had that lovely chill making one’s bed (or sleeping bag for the WOOLFies) a warm welcome, and the grass is a riveting green.

This is Camp Williams: those few days before meetings, classes and obligations begin in earnest.
