On Deciding to go to Grinnell College|

I didn't end up at Grinnell -- I fell in love with my advisor and my department when I visited Gustavus -- but the tour guide at Grinnell was the best, and if it had been up to the tour guide, I would have ended up there. He was talking about his different interests and activities as we walked through the cafeteria, and my mom said, "Yes, he can sing -- yes, he can dance -- but can he juggle?" And the guide said, "Yep," picked up three oranges and started juggling them, not missing a beat.
So I always had the sense that there were fun people at Grinnell even if Dennis stole my physics-inclined heart.
