Behind the syllabus: John Treadway

What do you do during the weekends?

I usually spend weekends trying to get my computers to work - so that they can fall apart on me again the following week...

What's the craziest thing you did when you were in college?

I spent the night in a catacomb on the Via Appia.

What's one thing your students would never guess about you?

Well three things come to mind:

1) I play the accordion (poorly).

2) I am an aficionado of German country-western music.

3) When I was an undergraduate at Florida State, I worked in the university's computing center and helped write computer programs for physics professors. (Yep, go figure...)
