In 2006, the author had moved to Moscow, Idaho, from New Delhi, after having worked for nearly four years in publishing houses. She had become exhausted by stets, specs, and style sheets.

Francis, Lynette Cook; Kraus, Amanda – About Campus, 2012

Davis, Jeff – About Campus, 2011
College campuses look different today, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, than they did 50 years ago. The buildings and signage may look almost the same, but the students who learn in those buildings definitely do not. Increased access and the diversity movement have resulted in younger and older students sitting side by side in the…
