  1. Are the college instructors going to explain their privilege, what with the tenure, life long healthcare and pensions?
    As snooty private college are they going to demean the students about their own privilege, consider;
    – Students accepted to Augustana typically rank in the top 20% of their high school classes.
    – The middle 50 percent of enrolled students for the class of 2012 scored 26–30 on the ACT, well above the national averages.
    – Augustana College is considered highly selective.
    I think the students should drop their privilege and demand the college allow Honduran refugees to replace them in their classes and the privileged students can work at McDonalds in order to the tuition of the refugees.
    Class dismissed.
