Deep Springs College is a two year high academic high labor college located on a ranch just north of death valley. ( more info can be found here: http://www.deepsprings.edu/ )

How can I maintain /fa/ surrounded by a bunch of farmer boys who ridicule traditional "high fashion" and what is the best /fa/ work-wear. I need sturdy work boots, warm overcoats, and tough jeans.

Maybe some western inspo as well considering the location of the college

you're shit out of luck dude. Unless you're ok with being made fun of by everyone around you.

Just wear levis,flannels, and cowboy boots for your own good

Looks very comfy actually, but

The most /fa/ major by far.
>>
>>10739744
It is called a liberal arts school but most students transfer out to major in whatever they want at a 4 year university (60% of the class of 2006 went to harvard and one of the macarthur genius grant winners from the school was a geologist, so there is some STEM up in there.)

>>10739760
This has to be bait.

>>10739624
Cowboys are really effay. Dress Americana and such. I suggest taking a look at the /smg/ thread.

I don't know that thread was shat on a lot, nothing really relatable there although I think an acne sweater with gender equality or radical feminism on it would be a pretty witty ironic wear at an all boys college

>>10739624
Your parents sent you to a work camp?

>>10739826
No, they don't want me to go, but it is an unparalleled academic experience

>so, anon, here says you´ve been to a ranch for two years and you have a degree in ... herdsmen?

That sounds neat, I heard about that pile. Thanks for the input, man!
>>
>>10739624
Godspeed world changer.
>>
>>10739624
Op how was the application process? And did you transfer from a college or go straight in from high school. I've been really interested in this school for a long time.
>>
>subtle prestige flexing
i see you op i was gonna shit on you but cacs out here getting educated
>>
>>10741579
highschool, it used to be longer/harder but now it has gotten more manageable. I find you really have to feel that this is the place for you. I know it sounds cliché but I've seen people with higher raw scores get dropped in favor of someone with a more personal essay. It takes a combination of the high scores and the raw emotion to make it
>>
>>10741577
>>10741582
Thank you guys both, really means a lot. I do value the opinions of strangers.
>>
>>10741753
yo op i've been reading more about this place its so cool. im no where near ballsy enough to go (or smart enough to get in obvi) but that you are is so dope, congrats on being my boss in 10 years.

>goal school population of 26

>>10740065
>>10741360
both knew someone who went there? ive rubbed shoulders w some smart dudes on here but at a place like this, damn.

OP what was your sat
>>
>>10741763
2370, I know I'm kind of flexing but I only took it once without really studying for it. But to be fair testing has been my strongsuit and gpa maybe not so much (I'm around a 3.6/4.0).
>>
>>10741771
respect, i was similar w being good at testing but not grades lol. what made you wanna go to deep springs over anywhere else? also have you committed already or are you still deciding
>>
>>10741901
No other school offers the same amount of challenge to every part of you. You don't go to Deep Springs to learn so much as you do to change. The labor program pushes your physical body to the limits and through that you gain a degree of invaluable experience, through the unparalleled rigor of the academics you gain a respect for knowledge itself and a drive to learn that you don't have if you're just trying to grind for gpa, and the level of self governance - the ability to choose classes, rules, incoming students, and even professors - and the amount of responsibility you have for those around you cultivates virtue, citizenship, and caring. No other school can provide this amount of push, and it all happens in sucha unique community and starkly beautiful campus. To attend deep springs is a horribly terrifying prospect, but it is also an incredibly exciting one. I know I have romanticized it a bit, but even the reality of late night studying/reading, hours out in the field, and furious discourse are still brutal instruments of change. So whatever attitude you go in with - whether you carry optimism or cynicism - it will change you and challenge every part of you.

And that isn't for everyone certainly, that's why only about 300 people apply every year, but platos allegory of the cave does a good job of illustrating that the path out of the cave is long, arduous, and painful - even seeing the light at the end of the journey is painful - and there is a degree of reluctance to see that light. I just value that light, that unclouded perception of the world, over the pain it takes to get there.
>>
>>10742811
I know this sounds terribly pretentious, and for that I apologize. I don't mean to sound like a douchebag - this is what I truly believe. If the idea of change, challenge, and truth excite you then by all means please apply.

Even if I hadn't made it I would still have been happy. I learned so much about myself and the world around me in the process and it motivated me to pick up my academic slack. I'd like to think that the school changing me before I even got there or had even seen it is a testament to it's power.

I hope this can inspire some up and coming fashion-loving intellectual to apply. Although it certainly isn't the most chic place - fashion is an art form with meaning behind it, and they respect art
>>
>>10742815
afraid i cant be inspired to apply, im already in college, plus i doubt my 2080 couldve gotten me in lol. just admirable is all

There have been a few spin-off projects. One a summer camp called the arete project for women. Another one is being developed in alaska.

You could always transfer, it's free so you don't lose much more than your time.
