What is With the Name?
In 1856 when the Michigan State campus was first being carved out of the forest, it was in the now famous "oak opening" where the first three buildings were built. We now lovingly call that oak opening the "sacred space." Those first buildings were "Old College Hall"(bottom), the dorm called Saints Rest, (middle ) and a horse barn. (top)
This blog is about "openings," in this case viewed as opportunities, and explorations in this rapidly changing and always entertaining life. It will also have some history, some discoveries, some pictures, some thoughts, some ideas, and hopefully some wisdom. Come along for the ride, and feel free to comment on anything at anytime.
