Rensselaer Polytechnic InstitutePosted: March 27, 2004
My weekend at RPI is now coming to a close. Many thank's to Vineet for allowing me to accompany him on his visit as a Graduate Accepted Student for the welcome weekend.
I met so many students searching for a basic encompassment of their areas of study. So many seemed to be there for all the right reasons. Life is difficult as a doctoral student, especially in a dry city like Troy. Some have managed to invest in Mutual funds too. When time runs out for them I hope they close that circle.
The day was full of meetings, I met faculty, administrative people and students. RPI is a place that encourages Graduate studies, Research, Teaching in Computer Science. Despite being a Private Institute, they have made considerable progress. The halls do have certain class and age written all over them. Troy is around 2.5 hours from New York City (I90 East)
What was I looking for? I reaffirm, the euphoria and the excitement that lived inside any child fueling his desire to learn and to grow. I want to keep that burning… it was pure!
