I've mentioned before that I'm in the labyrinthine process of applying and being accepted to (six different) colleges. One thing about this stage is that I get a lot of mail. Today, I received no less than 10 pieces of mail, one of which was a Listia win, and the other 9 of which were various college propaganda. This was a recent mail item that I couldn't resist a blog about, trade post backlog be darned. Here we go.*
COLLEGE FOR A WEEKEND (CFAW FOR SHORT, OBVS)
LIBERTY UNIVERSITY NOV 7-10
CLASSES? PSH. WHO SAID THAT WAS PART OF #COLLEGELIFEATLIBERTY? BY THE WAY EVERYBODY, TWEET AT US WITH #COLLEGELIFEATLIBERTY AT LEAST ONCE PER HOUR DURING YOUR VISIT! LET'S GET THIS TRENDING ON TWITTER PEOPLE!
NOT SURE WHAT CLASS TO SIT IN ON? OR JUST TOO BORING? COME AND CHILL IN INNER TUBES ON THE GRASS! THIS IS A COMPLETELY NORMAL AND FORMATIVE PART OF YOUR COLLEGE YEARS
DIDN'T BRING AN INNER TUBE? GEEZ SOMEBODY DIDN'T READ THEIR CFAW INFO PACKET WE MAILED YOU, LIKE TWO WEEKS AGO. STILL WANT AN INNER TUBE? I DON'T KNOW, GO SNEAK UP AND STEAL THAT OTHER GUY'S
SEE YOU'RE ALREADY BEING PREPARED FOR THE REAL WORLD, IT'S ALL "GO STEAL THE OTHER GUY'S INNER TUBE BEFORE SHE DOES." #COMPETITIONATCFAW #FREEMARKET #CAPITALISM
TOLD YOU COLLEGE TEACHES YOU LIFE SKILLS
SO THERE'S ONLY ONE QUESTION LEFT
ARE YOU READY TO DIVE IN?
*Bit of a disclaimer: This is in no way a slam on Liberty University or CFAW themselves, which I'm sure are both terrific programs. Consider this post a venting of sorts of the stress borne by a student who has to complete a bogged-down Common Application in less than two weeks.
