Wendell, these are so interesting, especially CL 145. I was going over the list of purported top universities- in some ways, UP beats them all! It just needs to keep moving forward and modernize.

UP is, in fact, way ahead of many universities in terms of groundbreaking research and creative productions. but our budget is ridiculously low.
