Thunderbird’s (publicly) Hidden Treasure

Ever felt jealous when you looked at those awesome videos that other colleges always seem to have up on Youtube? Like the one with the drunk freshman attempting a handstand in the middle of a road? Or the bunch of teenage girls that do a (very bad) rendition of an (equally bad) Rebecca Black song? Ever wondered why Thunderbird never had videos that were as cool as that? Obviously, you’ve been told that videos that are in the public domain need to be well thought out, lest they give out a bad image to recruiters, alumni or prospective students.

Before you start to comrapplain that you couldn’t care less what recruiters/other outsiders thought of our school, you must indulge in a brief Youtube search for Thunderbird videos. You will be happy overjoyed ecstatic to find out that Thunderbird does, in fact, have an equally awesome video up on the supreme video domain. And what’s more, it’s actually directed towards the alumni (in case you were worried about this not reaching anyone outside school). This seems like a bit of a wasteful effort though, because our ungrateful alumni don’t seem to appreciate the non-mediocrity of this video. The top rated comment on Youtube (presumably by the alumni) reads: “I will make a ‘donation’ for this video to be taken down.”

But we shouldn’t let that down our spirits. Frankly, do we even care what the alumni think of us or the school? It’s not like they help us with jobs or networking or donations or anything……

P.S. These are the views of a select few. If you feel differently, please write in to us at: dastor@thunderbird.edu or comment below
