And the Founder of Quinnipiac University is...
Posted by Sam at 5:42 PM

Right... so I don't want to jinx it, but as of right now (actually, as of February 26, 2007), I am, according to the all-knowing brain-in-a-jar that is Wikipedia, the founder of Quinnipiac University.

Yep. It's right there in the History section, second sentence in. It reads, "Quinnipiac University is a private, coeducational, nonsectarian institution of higher education. Originally known as the Connecticut College of Commerce, it was founded in 1929 by Samuel H. Cohen as a small business college..."

1929. Damn. I'm looking pretty good despite being almost 80!


I guess I should update my resume to reflect my former position as University Founder. Unfortunately, I will be unable to provide references... because they're all probably dead.

I don't know who made the actual edit (I do have my suspicions, though). But anyway, I have to go now. I'm off to the bursar's office. Being the founder, I assume that I'm entitled to a tuition reimbursement... or at the very least, a free bobble-head.

(What makes this inaccuracy all the more ironic, is that last semester I wrote a paper commending the Wikipedia community for its accuracy... promoting the notion that, by the collaborative authoring of worldly knowledge, accuracy will prevail! Clearly, I was wrong. But I'm not giving back my A. Oh... and just in case Wikipedia ever catches up with itself, and reverts to a previous iteration, here is a .pdf of the Quinnipiac University Wikipedia entry as it exists today.)

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
