WELCOME TO WOODMONT COLLEGE (E-BOOK)
It’s a ritual as time-honored among teenagers as prom or drinking too much and crashing your parents’ Corolla into the window of a Mexican restaurant—glossy catalogs from colleges arriving by the dozen each spring. Aside from the faint odor of kiwi bubblegum vape smoke, Woodmont College’s catalog, Welcome to Woodmont College, is superficially not unlike the others. But there’s no school quite like Woodmont College (no longer “university” due to a court order). And every page of its catalog is proof of this uniqueness, whether it’s touting the college’s low rate of scorpion infestation or celebrating its faculty’s various facial tattoos. The best part? You can order your own copy of Welcome to Woodmont College and learn for yourself why U.S. News and World Report has hailed the school as “a singular educational experience for young people searching for neglect of the arts and aggression by townies.”
Comedy writers Mike Sacks and Jason Roeder are your guides to Woodmont College—its missteps, its glories, its unsupervised quicksand pits—in this e-book exclusive from McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.
Praise for Welcome to Woodmont College
“Mike Sacks and Jason Roeder, two of the internet and traditional publishing’s most prolific and pioneering satirists, really stick it to the entire notion of higher education with this college catalogue and guidebook that makes all the hidden b.s. and subtext of academic life the text.”
