Transcript As you travel down that dark and lonely road to academic enlightenment, 20 grand a year, and a cheap little tract house in the suburbs, you will find many obstacles in your way, not the least of which are the people charged with giving you that education. It is not enough that you have to listen to overstuffed administrators and faculty tell you that the university was put here for your benefit. You also have to concentrate hard on not believing a word of it. No, the university was not put here for your benefit. It was put here for the benefit of building contractors, architects, food service companies, and administrators who work here because no one else will give them a job. Any benefit you get from this place as a student you have to steal. It is with this in mind that the editors of this volume have kindly asked me to prepare a short guide to the university which, they hope, will help you to better understand your stay at this magnificent institution of higher learning. By T. Edward Bell In an effort to meet the soaring cost of higher education, the university participates in many helpful financial aid programs. Students who qualify are offered various loan, grant and scholarship programs, such as the newly founded Hugo Smutz Fellowship for graduate work in phrenology. Nevertheless, students are often confronted with barriers on the way to a financially secure education. For instance, if the loan office worker demands a hefty bribe, the student often runs into trouble. Similarly, if the financial aid counselor discovers that you spent the previous year's check on a new motorcycle or a trip to Nassau, you could be in for a little protest. But students should have no fear, because there are several ways to extract money from the university. Pictured at right is our favorite method. It's known as groveling.
