Alchemy, Innovation, and Learning, in 2025

February 26, 2017

Dawn breaks on a gorgeous morning in summer 2025. Peter has been waiting for this for months. It’s New Student Orientation Day at My University, Peter’s customized version of four formerly separate independent colleges that functionally merged several years earlier. He readies himself quickly and by 8:30 a.m. carefully opens the box he recently received from Student Life. He takes out the virtual reality (VR) visor, adjusts it, and touches the switch. Instantly, he is on campus, being welcomed by Perpetua, his personal orientation leader.
