Well, we had that instrutor that wrote an essay about 9-11 victims and caused a great mess. Then his character was attacked, the state legislature looked for ways to revoke tenure, and we haven’t heard for him again.
It’s probably just another example of poor writing style. Some people feel that when they want to stress one particular word over another, the best way to do it is to put quotes around it. Since the bolding is yours, the only way they could get their point across that they really do want people to participate, apparently, is to draw extra attention to it by quoting it.
I hope not. I work for these people and they charge me $50 a month to park in their parking lot. I’d be ok with this, but recently it was revealed that some of the deans went to a “alumi event” in a limo. :mad:
I work at a university also, and it’s the same university I attended. When I showed up for move-in freshman year, they had these banners hanging in front of every dorm. The banners read:
Hill Hall “Welcomes You!”
They drove me nuts! I hadn’t had one day of college education, yet I knew that these were completely incorrect. What kind of education was I paying for? And these weren’t hand-painted things, either, they were professionally (well, Kinko-ly, anyway) printed.
They still use them, almost 10 years later. Still drives me nuts. I hate the beginning of school because of that and also because it means I can no longer find a decent place to park.
