Transcript Attitude? What Attitude? Most students discover the meaning of higher education during the middle of their senior year in college. They find out that the university is not only an institution where a specific trade is taught, but an environment where shared information and experience can lead to the ability to think — really think — for one's self. Yesterday, I conceded to eyestrain headaches and visited the college of optometry for an exam. Late, as usual, I hurried to the receptionist's desk as fast as my rubber thongs would take me and quickly dug my student I.D. from the torn pockets in my shorts to ensure my student discount. While reading an intriguing article on the relationship between number 137 and quantum physics, the "doctor" called for me. Actually, Doctor Greg was not yet a doctor, but for reasons of potential, I'll call him this. I was immediately disgusted. I have a particular dislike of any mold that society makes for individuals and this guy fit into the worst one: Yuppie. From his loafers, argyle socks and khakis to his pink polo shirt and paisley tie. And yes, those were Wayfarers in his shirt pocket. Immediately, he too, seemed disgusted. It couldn't have been my shaggy beard, earring, or comfortable attire that made him cringe. I was even wearing a brand-new surf shirt. It must have been his jealousy of my apparent adventurous character and masculinity. During the course of the exam, we found had a lot in common. Both of us had done well in high school, graduating with honors, and we both had become disillusioned with college before discovering its purpose. Now we both have goals in life and highly value free-thought. He shared several experiences with me such as losing his father, a job, a girlfriend and a car all at one time. "Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger" was only one of the topics discussed. Another was the pathetic way society forces individuals into preset destinies: finish college, get a well-paying job, buy a house and a car, get married, have kids and die in a respectable manner. We agreed that success should be gauged by self-set standards of accomplishment and satisfaction, not by those set by society: wealth and power. I had been wrong. After shaking hands and a pat on the back, I realized that Doctor Greg prob- ably wore those disgusting clothes because he felt comfortable in them. This guy had discovered the meaning of higher education. It is unfortunate that many students finish college with degree in hand, yet have not received a real education. — Darrell Hutto s o p H O M O R E S John Houston Adia Ahmed Ruben Alonzo Luis Alvarez Mohammad Ayyubi Neely Bean Lilian Bezara Julie Bivens Cheryl Blair Roy Bobo Alfredo Bueno Lee Burns Rosa Carrillo Lisa Cornin Wendy Crothers Jeffery Cummings Beate Damm Stafanie Dorat Baby Djojonegoro Ryan Ekholm 100 The University Of Houston
