Personal Reflections

Today, the campus is growing eerily quiet as many IMSA students go "home" to their families for the winter break after completing final exams and the fall semester. I place "home" in quotations since recently I have been reminded by some of our alums that this "bunker" in Aurora becomes "home" to many students during their brief three-year stay.

I could have placed "family" in quotations, too, as we often refer to IMSA as a "family." And IMSA is a "family" and a "home" to many of us, both students and adults. We spend more "awake" time with our "family" at IMSA than we do with our family at home.
