If you’re used to people criticizing your choice of subjects in college,
If you find yourself loaded with assignments of subjects like “Haiku Poetry” or “Buddhist Philosophy”,
If you’re tired of being told that your dreams are impractical and to a certain extent unrealistic,
If people often tell you that, you’re wasting your time and your parents’ money for a worthless degree
If the course structure of your college is mysterious to most of the people,
Well, then my friends you are at a Liberal Arts College.
- Explaining to literally everyone, “What is liberal arts?”
And after a half an hour long lecture (which can sometimes even extend to an hour) about what is liberal arts, the divine question greets us almost in all the cases, “But what are you studying exactly?”
Like seriously, are you that dumb?
- Being asked, “What job will you get after graduation?”
Oh! Come on, more than 80% of the youth of our country in ANY field doesn’t know about his/her future. So, why are we the ones who are always the target of your questionnaire sessions?
- Being thought of “not being good enough”.
- Getting that look “How dare you took up anything other than medical or engineering!”
- Most of the time are spent on campus
- Most of the people have no idea that your college exists
- You have the weirdest combination of subjects
Yes, I am an English Literature major with Math as my minor. Got any problem with that?
- Your friends in other colleges think you’re just having fun, not at all studying
- Subjects like “Objects Out of Place-The Explained and the Unexplained” are a reality.
- Everyone on your campus is a weirdo
We are a bunch of weirdoes and crazies. We love that about ourselves.
- Hanging out with professors outside class is actually fun
- A class of just 5 students is no joke
And therefore, it is very likely that our professors know us all by our names.
- Calling professors and seniors by their first name are no big deal
Why should it be a big deal after all?
- Even Google trolls you
- Do you regret your decision of pursuing Liberal Arts?
About 99% of the times, we don’t. At least, we’re following our hearts.
But at the end of the day, this is your “Wonderland” and there’s nowhere else we’d rather be.
