So we’re all scrambling, right? Err, not in reference to those things which we usually fry though sometimes scramble, but the other thing, them there “fry papers” we all got. Most of us are writing about Thucydides this time around, but IIT is very confident, that even given the complexity and depth of the subject, freshmen rockers will do great!
IIT executives have seen several students’ papers already and we are astounded at what we’ve seen so far. For example, “Abracadabra – The Greeks Build the First New Nuke” and “Phew-si-dies: Killer of the Clouds” are some of our favorites. Of course, some got permission to write about some of the many other interesting (and very long) things we’ve all read this semester. The Lysistrata and the Clouds are obviously quite popular, while at least one paper is being written on “Missing Professor Washut: A Month of Psychological Terror and Lack of Scandalizingness Class Objectives”.
But, the papers aren’t what we really want to focus on today, are they? Freshmen rockers have a lot to look forward to as even Dr. Arberry has promised: “Fun ahead for the freshmen.”
So, while you finish up your paper, here are a few resources to help you with common problems, pitfalls, and dangers we all experience.
