We have to agree. #UChicago #Chicago #College #fall (at University of Chicago Quad)
Say “Hello!” to The University of Chicago with this welcome video. A little crash course in all things U of C.
By now some of you are already on flights, roadtripping, teleporting, or otherwise on your journey to Chicago. For those of you currently in transit or else waiting to leave, how are you spending the last of your time before college? We recommend lots of hugs to your families, marathoning the Harry Potter films, eating chocolate, deep breaths, and thinking positively! Can’t wait to see you all around campus. I hope the 2012-2013 school year brings you all great things!
Had I not gone to the University of Chicago, I have often wondered, what might my life be like? I suspect I would be wealthier. But reading the books I did, and have continued to throughout my life, has made it all but impossible to concentrate on moneymaking in the way that is required to acquire significant wealth. Without the experience of the University of Chicago, perhaps I would have been less critical of the world’s institutions and the people who run them; I might even have been among those who do run them. I might, who knows, have been happier, if only because less introspective—nobody said the examined life is a lot of laughs—without the changes wrought in me by my years at the University of Chicago. Yet I would not trade in those three strange years for anything.
You know in Mean Girls when Regina George says that Lindsay Lohan has a t-shirt with that hot guy’s face on it and she wears it under her clothes all the time?
THAT WILL BE ME IN REAL LIFE. Except with this rockin’ UChi shirt because I love college more than hot guys.
Someone filled this in at a tour last week…so now we’re a little frightened. Voldemort is applying to UChicago as a transfer applicant?
