Another trip to US during the short Chinese New Year holiday.

The purpose of this trip was to visit some schools. I did not bring the larger camera with better lenses. All pictures were taken with a small digicam.

First school to visit was Cushing Academy. The school was founded in 1865, it will be 150 years old soon.

1st picture is the main building when approaching the school. 2nd picture is the main building taken right outside the library.

View of the library from inside and outside.

Note that there is not too many books in view here. We were told that the library has "gone digital" - books were now in Amazon Kindle format. Library users would borrow the books on a Kindle. I think physical books are too expensive to acquire and maintain.

Inside the library is also the student run radio station. It's basically a few iMac with playlists. I don't remember if the radio station is online only.

The cafeteria looks quite big and comfy for the 500 or so students.

Student artwork planted on campus, post office, and notice inside the girls dormitory regarding visiting hours for boys.

Open space with downward slope, covered with snow. So what students would do?! In my university days, students would take a tray from cafeteria and sled down the slope!! I am sure high school students would do the same, thus the need for this sign.

And in the student center, I found out that students these days do not have to do their own laundry. They can just drop their dirty clothes inside the laundry bag and pay someone to do it.

Another random picture taken at the campus.

On the day we visited, it was a surprise holiday (called by the principal) thus there was no classes. We think that the sudden holiday was called because many students and teachers were sick, maybe from the weather...
