Farewell Earthlings. North Korean state media has announced the death of leader Kim Jong Il. The Economist has featured him several times on our covers since 2000.

Rocket man.

Love the reuse of the exact same image in the last two. Sorta feels magical.

Fake classifieds in the UChicago mag? We like. Also, hit us up with some of that trust fund, magic physicist.

Sometimes we have to get creative to fill space in the Classifieds section, and sometimes alumni notice—and blog about—our silliness.

An Introduction…

Salvete omnes!
Junior year is well underway, and I’m already feeling the pressure of the college-crunch. So I decided to start a Tumblr to chronicle the rite of passage that is college-app season…

BUT. Although I’ll primarily post about college stuff: all else I find cool will appear here too. I mean, this IS tumblr — how could ANYONE resist posting a good cat meme?

reminded me of an awesome book I read over the summerThe Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America-by Erik LarsonGO READ IT. NOW.uchicagoadmissions:

World’s Columbian Exposition
Wishin’ they still had this. The Columbian Exhibition was located all around the UChicago campus - Jackson Park, the Midway, South Shore, Hyde Park, Woodlawn…one of the only two buildings that still stands is the Palace of Fine Arts (Museum of Science and Industry).
