So last year I unfortunately made the mistake of giving colleges my contact information, and although most of the emails and letters I have received are either scams or brochures, I did manage to stumble across several interesting attempts at making colleges appear captivating to teenagers.


But out of all of them, I'd have to say this one from the University of Chicago is the most interesting.


The email was called "Our campus is zombie ready." (They know how to get my attention)

(If the image doesn't load for some reason, the university is basically using HvZ to lure kids into their college... Not that there's anything wrong with that.)


Idk if this is old news, but I just thought that was cool and worth sharing. I never would've guessed that colleges would use HvZ as one of their main hooks (probably says something about the college), but I can't complain. And considering emails like this get sent out to high schools across the nation, maybe this brought some new people into this hobby.


Wishful thinking I guess.
