The Burdens of Administration
There was a time in my life when I thought it would be wonderful to work in a University, not necessarily teaching but may be in administering student affairs, working with and for young adults. Alas, I was seduced for a wider calling and the idea of quiet study in a lovely oak lined office, the Ministry. That was a fantasy that soon ran into reality.
Below is a letter from a student affairs administrator at Durham University in Britain. I burst out laughing when I read it. I can only imagine having to write it. What makes it doubly funny for me is that it is signed by "P. Robinson". No! it is not me.
