Lovecraft is deftly name-checked in the opening of the nicely-designed main booklet that welcomes new graduate students to Providence…

A long time ago, the writers Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft wrote of strange surreal realms hidden from common eyes. It was in the nooks and crannies of Providence that they experienced other universes, stranger and more fantastic than our own. While I am not a superstitious man, I find that this place is its own pocket universe, its population of geniuses focusing great energy into strange and fantastic projects. Being here is a unique experience, and I hope you explore all it has to offer.
