At the New York World’s Fair In 1964, Walt Disney premiered his iconic attraction "It’s a Small World," and that could not be more apparent to anyone than those taking GEOL 103 this semester.

DRL A4 looks less like a lecture hall, and more like a Black Friday sale at Walmart. Seating is by reservation only, and goes on sale the Friday before at 3:00 AM the following week.  

Name tags are required by the professor not really so that they can learn everyone’s name, but so that you don’t have to be embarrassed when you can’t remember that guy who used to live on your hall.  

Your roommate? Yup. Your friend Zoe? Duh. Joe from your writing seminar about pizza toppings? Of course. Your high school choir teacher? Absolutely. Mrs. Aarons from temple? Wouldn’t miss it for the world. Mom and Dad? Third row on the left side.

While you may be forced to sit on the ground behind your third cousin twice removed, at lease you know you’ll have a friend in recitation. You’re going to need some help excavating those fossils and skeletons. Wait, geology is the one where you dig up bones right?
