Writing a paper

No trips to the library necessary—find the most up-to-date primary and secondary resources, along with studies, papers, and reports, all online, from your laptop

Check out a stack of books and hit up the computer lab

Card catalogs, encyclopedias, Smith Corona typewriters and correction tape

IM, Tweet @ your professor, or maybe she's old-school…and on Facebook

Send an email… from your AOL account…or your very own .edu address

Lurk outside harried professor's hoarder office during limited office hours along with 10 other students

Pay off student loans before collecting Social Security

Get a job that you love… or drop out to be a successful entrepreneur

Join a corporation, work 30 years, retire with a pension

Check Twitter for nearby food trucks, Uber Eats

BBQ chicken pizza is so fancy

Head to the cafeteria for mystery meat

Realtime class polling, section discussion online, virtual reality classrooms

PowerPoint

Overhead projectors

#metoo and consent, gun control

Vagina Monologues, Monica Lewinsky

Apartheid in South Africa, Jonestown massacre

Slow wifi

Printer not printing your homework

Running out of Wite-Out at 1:00 am the morning your term paper is due

So many subreddits, so little time; Netflix & chill

Watching The Simpsons on syndication, Half-Life

Frisbee on the quad, foosball

grown-ish

Felicity

Animal House

Game of Thrones

Pulp Fiction

Peanuts
