Two small bits of news that makes Boston and Simmons seem just that much closer:
(1) This past Wednesday, I sent off a housing deposit to the office of residence life at the college, which will put my name on a waiting list for the graduate housing (upper-class students go through room selection later this month, and following that first-year students are given housing on a first-come, first-serve basis), and
(2) The GSLIS program has finally published their academic calendar for Fall 2007. Classes begin September 5th (after the Labor Day weekend). This is good news for Dad & Mom, who are hoping to drive me out to Boston–Dad will be able to see the store through the worst of book rush before we leave town.
