I was just talking with my advisor, remisincing about college. We both went to the same college, you see, albeit probably 20 years apart. He was telling me a bunch of college stories that were pretty amusing. Two of them perfectly illustrate the dichotomy that is my alma mater (a dorky engineering school):
1. The Sigma Nu house used to hold Saturday night chess tournaments. Woo!
2. Panhel (actually, it probably wasn't panhel back then -there weren't really any NPC sororities on campus, were there?) and IFC sponsored a Century Club FUNDRAISER. You'd get sponsored per beer you drank, but you only had an hour.
I know, the drinking age was 18 back then. What an exciting time to be a college student!
