I enjoyed our time with the villagers today. They had such interesting assertions about the campus, especially after we told them about the Harry Potter dinner. It meant a lot to me to show them Thomas Great Hall and the Cloisters. I felt genuinely satisfied to welcome them to our campus when they had so graciously welcomed us into their families and homes. I wish I had heard more from the villagers about what they thought of Bryn Mawr. We took a lot of time looking critically at our feelings about spending time at Camphill and I hope they did the same about our space when they returned. How did that experience compare to their usual field trips? What did they think of visiting a college? Did they consider that we entered Bryn Mawr around the same time several of them entered Camphill?
