Opis: Amherst Life - Ball Walter Savage
Excerpt from Amherst Life: Selections From the Undergraduate Publications at Amherst College
The selections that make up this book have been chosen from the various publications of the college in an endeavor to present, as faithfully as may be, a picture of the real student life at Amherst; life being best defined by the sophomore as "What we talk about after dinner." In order to accomplish this, mere literary excellence has not been sought for, since this is but one result of a single phase of college life. Undergraduates will care more to remember what they talked about than how their classmates wrote; while those who have already passed commencement day and the parchment "rite" will at best think of little merit the cleverness of undergraduate style, but care much to feel again the student abandon, which once enabled them to poke fun at the most sacred of their institutions or to moralize happily on the gravest questions of their college life.
