Only in College


I love working on a college campus. And not just because I’m surrounded by intellectuals and we’re all working toward the common goal of educating today’s youth and developing tomorrow’s workforce.

Working on a college campus you get to see things you wouldn’t see in the “real world” as I like to call it. Last week we spotted out of the window something that none of us knew quite how to describe. So we ran down and took some pictures:

Plastic Bag Monster Promotes Earth Day

Plastic Bag Monster Promotes Earth Day

Turns out, it was a guy covered in plastic shopping bags wandering around campus to promote Earth Day and the related on campus events this week.

If this was the “real world” it would have been a guy on a street corner wearing a costume that a marketing department developed and produced for thousands of dollars. This creative student gathered up some shopping bags, fastened them together and voila. The Plastic Bag Monster. Now that’s real college ingenuity.

A couple months ago, to promote the Vagina Monologues and other “V-Day” related events coming to campus, a student paraded around campus dressed as .. you guessed it .. a giant vagina.

Two V-Day volunteers, one in a vagina costume and the other in a shirt stating, “Vaginas: they’re kind of a big deal,” pose together in Aztec Center.

The great thing about being on a college campus is, these types of activities are not only commonplace, they are encouraged.
