3P-050 A is for Anarchist: the New Indie Student

A is for Anarchist: recaps the book The New Global Student: Skip the SAT, Save Thousands on Tuition, and Get a Truly International Education by Maya Frost. Reports research on study abroad, and her tips for getting around crazy expensive college costs while learning through your pores and having more fun. Tara the Transfer Diva explains how she rocks at Credit Quest, and we define terms like fego and halfpats. Of local interest, we propose a way for students to make themselves the most sought-after houseguests on the planet, with the help of Cabrillo College. A radio station is suggested in partnership with Cabrillo College and Santa Cruz indie news junkies, and a way to bridge the divide between trade school for dummies and academia for elitists.
