Visiting Brandeis

I gave a talk at Brandeis’s High Energy Theory Seminar this week. Brandeis is much easier to park at than Brown, but it’s proportionately easier to get lost in. While getting lost, I happened to run into this:

Many campuses have buildings that look like castles. Usen Castle is the only one I’ve seen that officially calls itself a castle. It’s a dorm, and the students there can honestly say that they live in a castle.

If I were a responsible, mature blogger, I’d tell you about the history of the place. I’d tell you who built it, and why they felt it was appropriate to make a literal castle the center of their college.

As I’m not a responsible, mature blogger, I’ll just leave you with this thought: they have a castle!
