Some things in higher education are so funny that they deserve laughs — multiple, sustained laughs. I want to draw those things in a cartoon strip so we can laugh together, but without any hurt feelings. How angry can you get at a mouse that talks and wears a mortar board?
The strip below pokes a little good-natured fun at admissions work. Admissions staff will tell you they’re interested in recruiting an intellectually diverse student body — but they can get excited about promising student-athletes too.
