The Most Important Question Malia Obama Should Ask on Her College Tours

Rebecca Shuman is wronger than wrong. She says the question is “What percentage of the courses here are taught by tenure-line faculty members?” That’s an unfair stab at contingent faculty who often are the classroom equals of tenure-line faculty members.

Lots of questions are more important than Shuman’s. Among them:

• In the Financial Aid Office, Do you know who I am?

• In the Res Life Office, May I have a single? Followed by, Do you know who I am?

• How high is the climbing wall?

• There’s a climbing wall, right?

• Cable in the dorms?

• Will the basketball team make the Final Four?

• What percentage of the entering students are male?

• There are some male students right?

• How important is class attendance? In the mornings? On Fridays?

• May I see the design of the “Intramural Champs” t-shirt?

• Can you guarantee my privacy if someday I drink a beer, smoke a joint, or get a “B” in a class?
