This account posts interesting content related to Shimer College, the Great Books College of Chicago.

Shimer has been quite the roller coaster ride since then, the best of my life, in fact.

Brad, fourth year student.

    Before coming to Shimer, my career plans bounced around frequently: at some point I have wanted to be everything from a computer technician to a tattoo artist to a journalist.  However, one of the things I have gotten out of Shimer has been somewhat of a cementing of my career ambitions, or at least of what degree I will be obtaining in grad school.  I have more or less decided I will be getting a Masters of Library Science degree, but I am still switching between wishing to be an archivist, or some breed of librarian.  The internship I’ve secured is aimed to help me decide between the two by giving me  real-world experience in both.
