    Starfleet Academy. I wanted to be a helmsman, but they made me a procurement officer in charge of uniforms. I quit after my four years were up.

    There's also an Oxford somewhere in the south, one of the Carolinas maybe.
    There's an "Oxford College" somewhere in rural Georgia. It's part of Emory University, I believe on Emory's original campus, and is a two-year feeder school for Emory. I don't believe they offer their own degrees.

    A pity they don't at least offer an A.A., so that their alumni could claim they were "Oxford graduates."

    The University of Mississippi is situated in Oxford, Mississippi. I can recall, when I was living in Austin, Texas, mentioning to one rather supercilious chap that I had gone to Oxford. He assumed that I meant "Ole Miss." I replied, a bit testily, that, no, I meant the real deal--Oxford, England.

    Speaking of Ole Miss, I wonder if that controversy over their mascot "Colonel Rebel" was ever resolved. Think I'll check it out.

    At least those Puritan upstarts didn't name their university town after yours ;D
