Middle of Michigan Avenue, early Spring morning. Loving #Chicago!
Good thing Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s Green is such a handy book. Without it, how would we decipher the exact color of these Penguin Drop Caps covers?
Also, Jessica Hische’s cover designs are really beautiful.

MODA’s Spring Magazine comes out today. Woooo.
Yesterday, some of our tour guides (in combo with UChicago Careers in Education Professions volunteers— learn more about UCIEP here) put on a scavenger-hunt-esque tour for 2nd and 3rd grade students involved in a tutoring program called Working in the Schools (WITS). ADORABLE.
Awesome! We’re so glad you like our emails! First off, we are a private school, so tuition is (technically) the same for everyone— but few of our students pay full fare. We guarantee to meet 100% of the need that you have, meaning that our financial aid office takes some documents and information from you and your family and determines a cost that will be feasible for your family to contribute— and we make up the difference (for most students, entirely through grants that don’t need to be repaid). So, we’d definitely encourage you and your dad to check out our financial aid information here to see if this looks reasonable to you! https://collegeadmissions.uchicago.edu/costs/
PS: It’s only cold… a few months a year. Also today. It’s cold today for some reason.

We’d make this one an imagined conversations for bygone times post, but it pretty much takes care of the weird all by itself.

“Based on the art of M. C. Escher, a Shmuzzle is a puzzle invented by Sam L. Savage for which there is only one solution, although the identically-shaped pieces will fit together in any number of ways.”
