momentary chaos

We were talking a bit about how to stay in touch with what's coming up in the li-berry future, higher ed trends, etc. and I said it helps if you have some teenagers in your life. They brought themselves to us today. About 50 middle schoolers swung by during their day of college visitation to see what an academic li-berry is all about. My group was very well behaved, although some were clearly not excited, but my student's group had kids swinging from exit signs and generally acting like little apes. She said the teacher didn't say anything, so she said, "Stop doing that, sweetie!" My goodness, what are chaperones for, then, if not to prevent their charges from hurting themselves?
