One student spent all her grocery money on laundry detergent during a stint as an extreme couponer -the addiction is real.
One student was filming a video at the Boston marathon bombing.
One student grew up on a ship as an army brat.
One student was either going to attend The Circus or go to law school.
One student was voluntarily hit by a car at the age of 16, after watching Jackass 3D, when trying to impress a girl.
One student has never lived in an apartment longer than one year.
Two students despise chocolate and one student absolutely loves chocolate.
One student is taking just one class this semester (before starting full time in the fall) just to be able to take Sylvia’s class, before she retires after this quarter.
And finally one student lives near a Kroger (he’s new to town).
Overall, the newest class is community-oriented, loves to travel and is musical driven. Above all else, they bring that special something—the creativity and drive for greatness— that will shape their Circus experience over the next two years.
