He was probably the most secure human being I’ve ever met… There are so many of us that walk around with insecurities and what people think about us, and Matthew just didn’t care. He was playful, he was energetic, he had the greatest sense of humor. He was just an amazing human being. Tomorrow, our campus will probably be decked out in Hawaiian shirts because he brought Hawaiian Shirt Wednesday to Goucher with him from Texas. That’s just the type of kid he was. He was playful and energetic and confident, but yet just one of the smartest people you will ever meet.

Slightly puzzled Bmore didn’t make the list (since we do make so man similar ones), but an FYI if you wanna try someplace new after graduation…

This theory is probably somewhat true? Yes?

I’m pretty sure there’s a magical wizard who goes around at night opening up all the flower blossoms on the trees at Goucher College

It makes the most sense out of anything today. Or ever.

Uh, oh, quick! Read a book! A real book!

Have you heard about the Pocket Anthropologist?  It’s a new tool that professor Robbie Blinkoff has been working on to help connect study abroad experiences with campus life.

EXPLORING BALTIMORE: Today, Hamilton-Lauraville is in the midst of revitalization.

A drive down Harford Road today isn’t quite what it was in 1944, when “stores, schools, theaters, churches, office buildings, laundries, bowling alleys, hamburger stands and night clubs” dotted the street.

But commerce has kicked in again, making the area one of Baltimore’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.

Looking for a place to explore this weekend?  There are some great coffee shops and restaurants in Baltimore’s Hamilton-Lauraville neighborhood.

Okay, Mortimer. We might believe you.
