i met at least 30 high-quality individuals. only 1 schmuck. (just kidding David.) IU is top-tier all the way. i love talking to people who get it. Bill Pariso
(grad and fellow Whitewater alum) made things comfortable and charming. also big thanks to Visiting Faculty Ian Meares
, who is without question the smartest person on the face of the planet--and a pretty good dude too. during the week i did crits with nearly every single grad, post-bac, and BFA. that's a lot of b.s. coming out of this mouth. huge thanks to the faculty for being involved and interested: Tim Mathers, Malcolm Mobutu Smith
, and Christyl Boger
. great people.
