How I knew that FSU was the right college for me:
- It has a great communications school that could help me launch a career in public relations;
- I was awarded scholarships to FSU, which would make it relatively inexpensive;
- Campus is right next to the state capitol, which would afford me the opportunity to make some great connections; or,
- Jim Morrison went there, and if it’s good enough for him, then it’s good enough for me.
Check out 20-year-old Jim in this FSU recruitment film, in which he plays a clean-cut square who is denied enrollment.
I love the irony. Maybe I’m a bit cynical after years in public relations (and having to create such promotional videos), but Jim – a government-defying rebellious face of counter culture – participates in the propaganda-filled video when he asks, “How come my parents, the state and the university didn’t look ahead?”. Way to blatantly side with the state school and the government, Jim, in their vie for additional tax dollars.
