Dear Freshmen: Anti-Advice from a Recent Graduate
For all the schools in the world and the students within them: we know nothing. Not that we haven't learned, but we refuse to further that learning. Four years and a degree are nowhere for any twenty-something to end their search for meaning or understanding.

Stranger Than Science-Fiction
