Microfiction Monday #71

Lovely Susan from ‘Stony River’ organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan J She provides a picture and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less – including punctuation!
Click here to read more marvels of microfiction – and perhaps join in. It’s fun!
Here is this week’s picture followed by my offerings.
This is one of our leading universities. Increased tuition fees allow us to offer the very best education and accommodation to our students.

NHS cuts mean that some budgets will be much reduced. We don’t think the high standards of care of which we are so proud will be affected.

  1. Who wouldn't want to go there now they have seen the photo? Love it.

  2. Interesting ways of looking at it, Janice.

  3. An interesting, different view of this rather sparse corridor!

  4. Does the empty hallway reflect the drop in students since the increase in tuition?

    Love your take on this one, these are always fun to read.

  5. Love the sarcasm in these. Excellent.

  6. It almost reads like a press release or well rehearsed private tour. Nicely done!

  7. Love your header picture, I can almost smell the roses from here.

    Not sure that I would want to attend school at the school.
    But it is probably cheap and I needed cheap when I went to school.

  8. I agree with Anthony, love the sarcasm and they do read like the press releases that immediately make me as questions! Terrific ones for the day, Janice! Have a wonderful week!


  9. It does remind me of my dorm days - I can still recall (although not fondly) the large cement blocks painted in vomit green.

    Good take on this one.

  10. Lets hope these Halls of Higher Learning are not a Medical University.

  11. Ah, a little bit of "tongue in cheek" for the week!

  12. Very striking take on the prompts...your words are a wonderful counterpoint to the empty hallways...well done!


  13. Enjoyed this different take.

    Thanks for the comment on mine. Hope your week is going well.

  14. Love both entries! But I confess that I wouldn't want to attend either institution....cheers~
