Oh no, now #UATX is getting slammed by satire


Dang, I got that video out barely in time, because already the satirical wolves are rending the carcass of the University of Austin. There’s going to be nothing left but bleached bones and regret.

    Yeah I just looked that up and broadly the way accreditation works is, different regions of the country have different bodies that handle accreditation for four-year postsecondary degree-granting colleges, like the kind you claim to be starting, and the Higher Learning Commission is, in fact, one of those regional accreditors, but it’s the regional accreditor for schools in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

    Noticeable by their absence.

    I love how The AP subtly says, “We’re not just shifting the goalposts, we’re writing the rules and scoring system after the game is over!”

    Rather than piggybacking on confusion with UT Austin (or in the parody APU), they should just go for it and name their ‘university’ Young Arrivistes Institute of Learning, so that at future cocktail parties their graduates could boast they got a degree from YAIL.

    I hear that’s the way Dumpster Daddy scores his golf game.

    What, they couldn’t get Dinesh D’Sousaphone for their board of Regents ? He has experience . . .
