The Journal Courier is a central Illinois newspaper that thinks college classes about popular culture are all about attracting students. A prime example of this “trendy” move? You guessed it:
A few years ago, universities realized they had to show they were more than just stuffy places with ivory towers and doctors with bow-ties. College-age society was changing and institutions of higher learning had to adapt.
Without that epiphany, we would never have classes like “The Textual Appeal of Tupac Shakur” (Washington University), “Zombies in Popular Media” (Columbia of Chicago) or “Street Fighting Mathematics” (MIT). (don’t bother reading the article)
They could at least get our college’s name right.
