Want to feel old?

If you want to wallow in your ancientness, show up on a college campus around 9:50 a.m. You are guaranteed to be overwhelmed by 13-year-old-looking college kids as they switch classes. That's what happened to me today when I visited the College of the Holy Cross to interview an economics professor. I was immediately transported back to freshmen year at UConn when I was completely nervous, lost and confused. Except this time I was also old on top of it.

Better yet, just avoid college campuses altogether. Or stick to online learning.

  2. I have to say, the Holy Cross kids were pretty fit...
