After working at Southern Illinois University for over thirty-two years, I still cannot get enough of the profound beauty of the place! I subsequently walk the Campus four of five days a week and receive spiritual empirical enrichment each time I am there.
The lovely classical architecture of the Old Campus is like nothing you will see in Illinois.
Or the commemorative statues of Delyte Morris and his wife Dorothy who with their combined efforts built the Southern Illinois University of today.
It is a supreme joy to have such a beautiful academic facility so close. Indeed when people from all walks of life move to Carbondale from much larger and more urbane settings…they never leave!
The slower life style coupled with the Arts and academic enrichment of a major university is a compelling combination…for a relaxed…peaceful…diverse and interesting existence.
