Which view, madam?

Wesleyan is set slightly up on a hill, and the back of the campus in particular drops off quite sharply. So much so that the dorms look down on the street below with a kind of sheepish superiority (they're not much to look at, except one circular building entirely glassed around, probably a canteen of some kind). Some are above the decrepit tennis courts, some above an old cemetery, which is really right up against the campus. Across the road is a quite beautiful modern one, the Indian Hill Cemetery, with a tiny chapel.
