Walk-In Application Day Returns Like a Jedi on 12/2/11

Last year we had five Walk-In Application Days. At the onset I thought I'd be clever and compare each to the nearest major holiday. 

Why holidays? Because WIAD is a long tradition (like Thanksgiving Dinner), stressful (like Black Friday), and fun for the whole family (like Christmas Morning). 

That was fun for the first few, but I rapidly ran out of witty holiday metaphors (and also, incidentally, of the holidays themselves). So this year, rather than resorting to a hackneyed attempt at making a analogy to National Mutt Day on 12/2/11, I'm going to try something new (and equally hackneyed):

Movie Sequels 

And what better sequel to start us off than George Lucas's finest work, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi?

So, here goes after the jump. 

...Please pardon my nerdiness.

Happy Thanksgiving From Marymount College!

The Eternal Question This Thanksgiving:
There comes a time where every man must ask:

“To brine, or not to brine, that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler for the bird to get dunked in a liquid of immense salinity, or to take it into my arms and with a sea of butter, lovingly baste it. To brine, to dry out no more; and by brine we end the long history of moisture-sucking breast meat, the heartache of a bird sacrificed only to go uneaten. The flesh so moist: ‘tis a consumption devoutly to be devoured. To baste, to butter—to crisp and brown the skin—aye, with a spice rub. For in the basting, what flavor may come when I turn on the electric coil of my oven must give us pause—the respect of the in-laws to be earned. For we cannot bear the whips and scorn of the dinner guests for a bird cooked wrong, the poor cook’s pangs of dispriz’d dinner….”

Alas, poor Butterball, I’ll cook you well.

Experts Agree: Marymount Housing is More Awesome Than Soviet Bloc Apartments

Yeah, we're pretty proud of our Residential Life at Marymount. After all, you get a house—a fully-furnished two-or-three bedroom townhouse to be more specific. And we include utilities, food (from the same company that caters for the Getty Museum), parking, 24-hour gated security, and transportation. 

It's certainly better than some of the alternatives.
