Blindern is the main campus of the University of Oslo, located in Nordre Aker in Oslo, Norway. Most of the departments of the University of Oslo are located at Blindern; the central building is Georg Sverdrup's house. Other buildings of note are the social studies building. Though the construction of a university campus at Blindern was decided on as early as 1921, the first buildings were not ready for use before 1931. Only in 1960 was Upper Blindern, the area most associate with the University today, finished. UiO today has 32,000 students; the campus is named after the old farm Blindern from Norse Blindarvin. The first element is the genitive of an old name of the brook, the last element is vin f'meadow'; the word Blind is derived from the fact that parts of the brook were hidden to see since the brook had a deep course. Blindern was ancient farmland. In the 18th and 19th century the owners were among the progressive farmers who employed modern methods of agriculture, sold refrigerated milk to the city.

Halvor Blinderen was a pioneering farm owner and was among the first farmer to grow potatoes in Norway. In the 1850s parts of the Blindern farm were made the vicarage of Vestre Aker parish. Among the parsons was poet and folklorist Jørgen Moe, buried at the churchyard

...If I Ever Fall in Love

... If I Ever Fall in Love is the debut album of American R&B group Shai, released December 22, 1992, on MCA Records, it was produced by group members Darnell Van Rensalier. The album produced three hit singles, "If I Ever Fall in Love", "Comforter", "Baby I'm Yours". On January 13, 1994... If I Ever Fall in Love was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, for shipments of two million copies in the United States. Although it performed well commercially, the album received mixed reviews from music critics. Rolling Stone gave the album three-and-a-half out of five stars and complimented its "crisp, precise harmonies that imply explosive vocal power but display few pyrotechnics", adding that "Shai joins the spiritual yearnings of Take Six with the secular pull of Boyz II Men". David Browne of Entertainment Weekly found its hip hop and new jack swing-oriented songs "fussy unconvincing", but praised the group's crooning and stated, "They wrap their voices like a thick shag carpet around the choruses of the album's languorous, starry-eyed ballads".

However, in his consumer guide for The Village Voice, critic Robert Christgau gave the album a B- rating and named it "dud of the month", indicating "a bad record whose details merit further thought". Christgau found the group's singing "indifferent" and panned them as having "no class and no sense of humor. There's not a winning wink on the entire album". In a retrospective review, Allmusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave it two-and-a-half out of five stars and stated, "Apart from the gorgeous title track, most of the material on... If I Ever Fall in Love is underdeveloped. Credits for... If I Ever Fall in Love adapted from Allmusic.
