The university that I attend - perhaps not the one listed on my profile - is a university with a difference. Sometimes, we do dumb shit in the name of formality, uniformity, or perhaps, in some alien way, the development of leadership.
All of which is unlikely, though. We do things because that's the way they've always been done at this particular university.
That's not the worst of it, though.
When someone new comes, takes up the mantle of changing the institution, they often make the wrong changes.
They want to change the aspects of this particular university that MAKE IT WHAT IT IS, instead of changing the things that are detracting from the overall package.
But that won't change in the immediate future. It's been changing in the wrong direction for years now.
Only two-hundred-and-some days to graduation, though.
