Had a really nice…

Had a really nice conversation with a former student who wandered by; ended up giving him half an hour of academic career advice, which he was super-appreciative of. This is one reason (of many) why the adjunctification of the university is terrible for students -- if I'd been an adjunct forced to run to four different schools in order to make enough money to barely survive in Chicago, I would not be sitting in my office with an open door right now. I wish I knew how to make more students (and their tuition-paying parents) aware of this issue. They're being cheated, and they don't realize it.
