Beloit College's squirrels gush about its academics
Some colleges recruit their most beautiful students to promote the school in videos. Others parade around coaches, mascots or famous alum.
Beloit College in Wisconsin went with its army of campus squirrels. Yep, squirrels.
While feasting on acorns (and, in one scene, a muffin wrapper), the little beasts tell viewers about listening to lectures and student conversations, watching football games, and smelling vegetarian and vegan food cooking in the dining halls.
"My favorite part about living here?" one squirrel says. "These students. They smile when they walk by, treat me with respect despite differences between us. They are very kind."
You can watch more Beloit videos on its You Tube channel.
