Higher education has come a long way

Overheard on the bus, two girls talking about college. One girl was very happy about the place where she planned to go, the other asked what she would have learned in the end, the answer was incredible: "You won't actually be anything afterwards, but you get to do surfing, kickboxing and yoga, and you get some course credits". To paraphrase Beavis & Butthead: Higher education has indeed come a long way.
