“It’s 2212, and I’m marking my 220th year as a member of the faculty. It’s been a little strange teaching the great-great-great-great grandchildren of my original students, but who knew that my penchant for asparagus and peanut butter sandwiches held the key to long life?

HWS was reaching a new level around the time of my 20th anniversary, but the big turning point came when we hired Lulu Googler as president and she put her family money to work for us. It was coup enough when she bought Oxford and Cambridge at that remainder sale, but to be the first college with a term abroad on Mars – I still have a hard time believing we pulled that off!”
