Reflections on University 40 Years Ago (in reply to: Going To University: 1963-1967)
As I said in another posting here at this site, I wonder what students now in university will be saying to those in university in 40 years, in the mid-2040s. I wish you all well, good management, lots of energy and survival skills in the years ahead.-Ron
