Quirk Before You Work
You long to step outside the realm of ordinary. And to prove you’re the real deal, you’ve decided to snag a career that’s slightly off the beaten path. Perhaps not something as exotic as master lion tamer. But still a work situation that satisfies your incessant urges for something fresh and different.
Now ask yourself — why wait until that glorious moment when you land that unique job or grab the entrepreneurial reins to embrace the refreshingly unusual? There’s actually a stepping stone that will get you good and ready for greater and more unusual things to come. And that stepping stone is college. Not just any bread and butter institution of higher learning, mind you. The one for you must be the epitome of quirkiness. Nothing less will do.
Fortunately, the USA boasts ten distinguished institutions of higher learning that take quirkiness to a whole new level. Forget the outrageous goings on of the party you barely remember from several weekends ago. The unusual lights up these campuses on a daily basis. And you can read all about these quirky colleges in this eye opening USA Today article.
Of special interest was Oberlin College in Ohio. Among the many unusual campus features are a student-run Experimental College, where – are you ready? – the students teach classes! How great would that be for your your resume? And of special interest during this holiday season is College of William and Mary in Virgina. To celebrate the season each year, the school president dresses up as Santa and entertains the student body with a rousing reading of ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’.
