Blacksbury – the site of the awful student shootings. I asked a local person if security had been intensified on the campus since the event. He did not seem to understand why I was asking the question, and indicated if I want to see the campus, just drive on. I have vivid memories of my experience in trying to tour the campus of Austin University in Austin. Those who read my post for that day, may remember my mention of the guard stations at every access point and that only people with a reason to be on campus were permitted entrance.
When I arrived at Virginia Tech’s campus, there were no guard stations and no restrictions. The campus and the buildings are terrific. Vast open common areas with all of the buildings constructed from, what appears to be, a common type stone. Don’t know the history of the how that construction came to be – it would interest to learn more about the school. The students I talked with were all so open and helpful. There responses me hope for the future.
I liked Blacksbury, as I do most college towns.
Heading NE – stop point to be determined.
