All this writing about universities wouldn't be complete without Ben Folds (and his 2 other band members of the Ben Folds Five) take on the matter. You may want to go to college instead of joining the army, but after 3 sad semesters, this gentlemen ended up joining a band instead. I gotta say, it worked out well for him. Ben Folds is a true entertainer.
Awesome lyrics here - from Chapel Hill, NC, the Ben Folds Five - "Army" from "The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner"*:
* From Wikipedia, if you can believe any of that crap, but I've heard this story before:
The title of the album refers to a name used by the band's drummer Darren Jessee and his friends on fake IDs as teenagers. The band was unaware of the existence of the real Reinhold Messner, the first man to climb Mount Everest solo, and the first to do so without the aid of bottled oxygen, until work on the album had already progressed.
