If you follow this blog, you'll know that I'm currently working on my Masters in Computer Science through the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.  I really like the program I'm in.  Most classes are real.  There are real people meeting on campus 3 times a week in a classroom and those of us online get to join in via a camera.  It's strange though taking classes at a school you've never been to.  You see the whiteboards in plenty of rooms you've never set foot in.  Next week I'll have the opportunity to change that.  I'm going back as part of a recruiting trip to UIUC and I'll get to spend a few days on the campus.  I look forward to getting a better feel for where things located and just experiencing the campus and surrounding area.  I might also try to go look up a professor or two that I've taken classes from.  Should be fun.
