It’s the University of Washington, not Washington University. I would know, I go there (and I’m on their Quidditch team!). :)

I dunno… Every time I see or hear of folks running about trying to play Quidditch, I can’t help but flash on Monty Python & The Holy Grail….

I once saw an awesome feature on the news about real Quidditch. I wish I could join a team.

AHH. Texas A&M University is attending, not the University of Texas! They don’t even have a team. :/

I’m super stoked to attend, though!

I am kind of excited about this, but none of the schools near me are cool enough to pull it off.
