And despite all of our professional or personal protestations, seniors have blithely blundered on through to graduation still pulling pranks in school, skipping class, or generally shutting their effort down, without much of a public impact on their post-secondary school plans. Not anymore, according to a recent article, which could be bad news for folks looking to become knowledgeable and more employable by attending college in an already bleak economic climate.
