I cannot fully explain just how much I loathe college administrators. In due time they will become the next "bankers" in that society, especially younger folk, will wake up and realize just how much these vermin of society screwed them over selling them not just a bill of goods, and not just crippling their finances, but how they brainwashed the youth to so effortlessly go into debt to pay for their bloated salaries. And when the education bubble collapses they will be the righteous scapegoats just like the bankers were for the housing bubble.
However, there is good news on the front. News that shows just how desperate college administrators are that the gravy train may be ending.
From my Secret College Student Agent in the Field:
"Hey there. Just a quick note between study sessions. I wanted to let
you know the latest work-study project I have been helping with. Cold
calling former students. Yup. 2k+ Names and numbers of students that
were enrolled for spring, but have not yet enrolled for fall semester.
This is the script I was given.
"Hello, my name is------, from FUU
and we just wanted to let everyone know that enrollment is now open for
fall semester. If you have any questions our website, fuu.edu, is
available or you are welcome to call us at XXX-XXX-XXX. Thank you have
a great day"
Fall classes start Sept. 2nd, so there is still
plenty of time to enroll, but the administrators are poopin their pants,
because by this time there should be loooooots more enrolled, and
summer was down a lot also. I don't have those numbers yet, but for
them to rally the troops to cold call it has to be bad. First crack in
the edububble? Well see.
I hate cold calling. yuck. YOur tax dollars at work, go work study."
Sniff, sniff. You'll forgive me if a little tear of pride in my little agent in the field is welting in my eye.
Remember, June is "Worthless Degree Awareness Month." Do your part by forwarding, linking or just plain warning your kids about the risks of majoring in a worthless degree. Also consider buying the book "Worthless" which is .0016% the cost of the average college degree (unless you buy a Kindle version which is only .0006%!)
