Professor NotBatman was out of town last week. I know very little about him - he studies the effects of Parkinson's Disease and heroin addiction on the brain, has 7 children, and always wears Rutgers t-shirts. The last fact is a bit of a disconnect in a 40-something man - but I suppose he's either teaching undergrad students or in his lab. He said while he was traveling last week, people often approached him in airports to comment about our football team, and that this was a different, but positive experience. He also said, with a broad grin on his face, that donors like when a university has a good football team and that it "should be a good year" for funding. I was a little puzzled by his comment. After all, we're in pharma alley. His lab is probably very well funded regardless of whether the pigskin is thrown with precision.
Rutgers is playing UConn today. Go Scarlet Knights!
The schedule of classes has been posted for spring semester, so I am trying to decide what class I will take. I haven't decided what my major is yet, so I am trying to get a good start towards my core classes. My hope is that once Lauren is in school all day, and Lindsay is around 18 months old, I will be able to go to school full-time.
