Abandon All Hope

By Tim Butler | Posted at 23:11

If I seem a little scarce, that's because of an exam I have tomorrow night for History of the English Language (those wondering about the Dante reference in the title should assemble the initials of the class's name, which gives the name students affectionally refer to the class by). At any rate, the tests in this class are absolutely legendary in their infamy. Every English major hears horror stories about how difficult these tests are.

There are many reasons for this, none of which I'll bore all of you with tonight, but I'll say this for now: I hope I am as fortunate as Dante and can look out to the stars tomorrow night. :)

Re: Abandon All Hope

I remember a course - Western Civilization - which was designed to flunk out freshmen. Sort of a hurdle, not really a “class”.

I didn't realize that colleges still did this stuff. I thought most private schools tried to get the kids to graduate ???

I'm not sure, Mike. I'm puzzled about it… :???:
