Sir John Metzler III University
The Sir John Metzler III University, also known as Metzler University, is the main university in Shirekeep. It has seen many different goings on over the centuries, including culinary classes, Gaelic classes, and programming classes.
The University is administered by a Chancellor. When that position is vacant the institute is under the guidance of the Minister of the Interior. The current Chancellor is Gaudin. In 3802 ASC, the university was consolidated by Kaiser Leto III. Certain halls were merged or got a new purpose.
Halls of the University
The University is divided into several halls, each of which is dedicated to a different field of study.
Darwin Hall ("Where Great Ideas Evolve") is currently a brainstorming center, though it has been requested to be the home of the University's Debate Club as well. Originally created as the brainchild of Kaiseress Semisa I as a place to discuss ideas for the nation that either weren't under the domain of a specific Ministry, or concerned the population as a whole, it has since become an idea-ground in general for the entire populous.
Uniting the former Escher Hall (center for the visual arts), Shakespeare Hall (A theater, an orchestra chamber, a radio station..) and the Tolkien Hall (Center for the literary arts: poetry and prose).
SSHIT codifies the past; those in Sorto Hall create it. Where SSHIT is codified fictional history, anything in Sorto Hall is not "canon history" and is therefore subject to being mere rumor. However, the focus of SSHIT has recently shifted to Sorto Hall, allowing everyone to help create Shireroth's history, instead of just the members of SSHIT.
Tony Au Memorial Library
The Tony Au Memorial Library predates the University and has only very recently become part of it. However, the Library is a compliation of the great works of micronationalists, documents of historical importance, reviews of history, and essays concerning micronationalism in general.
The 400 Wing
The 400 Wing is the University's gaming club, currently building their own tabletop gaming system: the Imperial System.
Gryphon Avocatio Hall
A centre for the study of languages of Shireroth and the Shirithian people, Yardistani studies. Since 3802 ASC, also the place to follow classes!
