The Ides of March





What do George Clooney, Miami University and I have in common? Miami University is where I went to college, and it's where George Clooney is shooting his new film, The Ides of March. That's a photo of him on set.. it's cold here!

Miami University is in Oxford, Ohio. It's a sleepy college town northwest of Cincinnati. It's a pretty campus. And it's the REAL Miami... not the one in Florida! Miami is named for the tribe of Indians who used to inhabit this area. (I don't know where that other Miami got it's name!)


The small photo is the dorm where I lived. That was in the dark ages, when males weren't allowed inside, and our curfew was 10:30 on weeknights and midnight on weekends.


This is one of the classroom buildings, where I spent many hours...


...and this is the view I had as a gazed out the classroom window:


Go see The Ides of March when it comes out, and you will see where I went to school! (it's just one location... they are also shooting all over Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. George grew up around here, so I guess he remembered it.)

Your college looks a lot like mine. I guess it's the red brick and autumn leaves...sigh. Makes me nostalgic :)
