I Don't Know What The Fuck Any Of This Is But It Came To My Faculty Email This Morning From My Chair. From Charlotte in Charleston.

Let's have some fun with this next week!!


Pokémon have taken over campus! Whether you just downloaded the Pokémon GO game, or you’re a level 30 gym leader, the Hamline campus is a great place to catch Pokémon, restock your supplies, and battle at gyms.

Within the bounds of campus, Pokémon trainers can reach over 20 different PokéStops and three different gyms, including one at the Bishop statue. Campus is also a hotspot for the pocket monsters. Along with the common Pidgeys and Wheedles, rare Pokémon like Staryu, Eggsecute, Jigglypuff, and Meowth have been spotted on campus.

  1. Yup, the students need another reason to walk around campus at a slow speed, staring at their phones, looking like they've drunk a 30 pack before noon. Peachy.

  2. My local college campus and library have multiple pokestops and at least one gym. During the summer, it's all fun and games, but I'm worried about distractions in the classroom this fall, especially for rooms overlooking outdoor areas.

    Back in the late '80s and early 90's I lived in St. Paul, MN, where Hamline is located. In those days it was a pretty well-regarded school regionally; its particular strength was teacher training. I'm truly sorry to see what it has now descended to.
