The art building is a labyrinth. There are at least four sets of spiral staircases, maybe more. some classes are conducted behind wooden partitions, some held in open areas under balconies with people walking all around. It's a really energetic atmosphere and it makes me wish I were a teacher. I found one room filled with nothing but letterpresses.
My research class is devoted entirely to developing a thesis. Apparently, having grad students facing this prospect so early is something unique to Kent State. It's my biggest worry at the moment as I thought I would have more time to develop more of a scholarly, rather than a practitioner's, perspective of design.
