It's that time of the year again

My brother's been receiving various brochures from American colleges. Looking at these beautifully printed packets of false advertising, I can't help thinking:

--When do I get to be the token Asian in a picture?

--Brochure pictures of the surrounding wilderness should be labeled "Warning: We're in the middle of nowhere."

-- Can they stop showing pictures of snow and instead show pictures of heated tunnels under the snow?

--My professors never smile like that.

--Instead of charts displaying their racial diversity, schools should print charts showing: 1) The local price of a good-sized meal 2) average transportation costs to the nearest mall and 3) the median grade on any class's curve.

--There are creative essay topics, and then there are creative essay topics. And there are essay topics that make no sense whatsoever.

--Brochure students are always grinning. The question is whether or not they're grinning during finals.
