There are library makeout sessions.
Attractive medical students.
Attractive hockey players.
Attractive hockey fans.
Just a lot of attractive people.
But some, like Marie-Noëlle Ryan, the president of the university’s professors’ and librarians’ association, think the ad is “pathetic.”
“It’s the way it’s like selling the university, like it’s a beer product,” Ryan said.
“And it’s not that way that you will recruit serious students and people who really want to learn and have good diplomas.”
Which, yeah, Ryan has a point: studying is an important part of college. But so is growing as a person, and making out with a diverse and beautiful arrangement of coeds helps you grow as a person, right?
Priorities aside, we’re more worried about the unrealistic expectations the ad sets.
Sometimes, in college, you want to go to class in sweatpants. But if your campus is full of genetically exceptional individuals, you may feel a need to put on airs. Or worse, actual pants.
And that would be the biggest tragedy of all.
