Change isn’t necessarily a dirty word. Here are some observations on the haves (have changed) and the have nots between the time we hung around Gambier as students in the 1980s and the day we drove our daughter, a Kenyon student, up the Hill.

Like the elderly, college students are worried about their futures, they are worried about money and security, and they long to matter in the world.
Two things about the future were made abundantly clear to me growing up in the 1960s: it would involve moon colonies, and we’d be able to talk on video phones.
