How Zombies Can Teach You About College
November 9th, 2011

The living dead seem to be taking over some college campuses, with students participating in games like Humans Vs Zombies (HvZ) and even Zombie Walks that raise money for good causes.

Sure, you may not need to know how to survive a zombie attack, like the folks in “The Walking Dead,” but we found ways that zombies can actually teach you about college. It may even help your education come alive!

1. Have a one-track mind.
All zombies want are brains. They’ll do anything to get yours. If you have the same mentality, but focused on your degree, you’ll get through school without distractions and with your brain intact.

2. Pick up those feet.
If you find yourself shuffling, unmotivated to get to class, realize you may be falling into the zombie mode.

3. Take care of your body.
Even while in college, don’t ignore your health. One unsettling thing about zombies is the fact that they’re bloody, with scars and wounds that never heal. Their skin is rotting, and hair and nails are falling out. A shower every now and again, and some clean clothes can take away your inner zombie.

Even though your lack of sleep may have you feeling like a zombie, a little money may help you feel more alive. Enter to win $2,500 by sharing your story of how education can help you come alive!
