Bucking the Trend…Tiny Colleges

Over the last few decades, the United States has been obsessed with size. Until gas prices approached $5 a gallon, massive SUVs ruled the roads. Even now as gas prices have dropped, I’ve noticed a rise in the number of New SUVs on the road. In the 1950’s, the average new home construction was slightly over 1200 square feet. Today, the average is twice that all while the average family size is shrinking.

Universities are no different, mega-campuses have been increasing to the point where there are now nine public universities with over 50,000 students. Central Florida University now boasts over 60,000 students. This doesn’t count private institutions like Liberty University that grow huge enrollments through online programs. Central Florida wasn’t even established until 1963. The next largest university, The Ohio State University, had 20,512 students in 1950 and had an enrollment of 58,663 last year.

Revisiting 2014…aka another top 10 list.

A little while back I had a fan of Faith on View message me on Facebook asking me to once again post regularly on Faith on View. Okay, truth be told it really was more of an internet friend teasing me for my failures. For those who follow this blog, they noticed that in September posts stopped fairly abruptly. What happened was that I had the wonderful opportunity to become a Senior Lecturer at California College of the Arts which is one of the top Art Schools in the nation. But, I had previously committed to teaching two classes at William Jessup University, an evangelical school in the Sacramento  area, and a class at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, where I am pursuing my PhD. This meant that in addition to the Theological Aesthetics course I was auditing from the esteemed Frank Birch Brown, I was also now teaching five classes at three different institutions. All that to say I was really busy and I let my writing on Faith on View slip. The good news is that this semester my teaching is reduced and I am only teaching one course at GTU and one at CCA. This should translate into more regular writing from me. I have a lot of ideas so I am looking forward to having more time to get them on “paper.”
