I'm Not So Impressed With the Ivies Anymore. This Class Taught at UPenn is Like EVERY FUCKING CLASS TAUGHT AT MY COMMUNITY COLLEGE.

ENG 111

Students will be required to stare at the screen for three hours, only interacting through chat rooms, bots, social media and  listservs. Distraction, multi-tasking, and aimless drifting is mandatory.
