Due to Lack of Interest Tomorrow has been Cancelled
Due to Lack of Interest Tomorrow has been Cancelled Author:Irene Kampen When Irene Kampen returned to the University of Wisconsin as a 45 year old undergraduate, she discovered, among other things: — *Saul Bellow wrote Herzog. Or did Herzog write Bellow? — *A magic marker was absolutely necessary (because when taking lecture notes you had to put a mark through a particularly important note so that when you were study... more »ing you would know it was a particularly important note
*Her old sorority house had been converted to the Ayn Rand Co-educational and residential eating co-operative house
*There wasn't quite as much room on the walls of those "Hallowed Halls" for the ivy since the student underground had taken to leaving messages like: Due to lack of interest, tomorrow has bene canceled.
This is a seemingly true story about the author, Irene Kampen, going back to college to finish that last semester and graduate from college. It is set in 1968 and things are definitely different from when she left in 1943. After all, 1968 is the "hippie" time frame and students are in to peace and love. And it doesn't seem to matter that she is 45 in this book, she still has to abide by the unmarried students rule and has to get a letter from her mother saying she can live off campus.
All in the the book was good and amusing to see it from another perspective. It was a fairly quick read. It isn't necessarily a blockbuster but it was interesting to see how life at college might have been in 1968
