College Student Majoring in Magic

At some universities, students can design their own majors. Jordan Goldklang of Indiana University is an illusionist, and is majoring in magic:

Known as The Great Jordini to some, Jordan Goldklang is a senior from the San Francisco area. He is the only student at IU, and the only one in the U.S., who is majoring in magic — a major he created through IU’s Individualized Major Program.

Since then, he has devoted his time at IU to the major.

Tonight Jordan will present a magic show in Alumni Hall for his final project as an undergraduate. He’s hoping to sell out the venue, which holds 600 people. So far, he’s handed out 1,000 flyers, put up 3,000 posters and invited more than 1,000 people to the event on Facebook.

@Gerry: Increased education is the cost of modernity. If you don't like it, stop using the goods and services that are the consequence of widespread college education. Like, you know, everything invented after maybe 1975.

Granted, not everyone should need a college education, and we need to do a better job of appreciating that. As a society, we need to put more value on crafts and trades, as well as the (decreasing, but hardly disappearing) necessity of unskilled labor.

I'm sure someone, somewhere, would get a Doctor's degree, and legally change their last name to Strange... or Strangelove, that would be equally awesome!
