There is one nice thing about it never going below freezing here, and it's the beautiful greenery of campus. It looks like none of the plants have gone dormant. There are many tropical plants here that haven't seen before. I think the cherry blossoms are starting to bloom now too. Today we went to the library to get our faculty cards and saw the lakes and the black swans that live here. The campus is truly beautiful and I still haven't seen all of it.
