A college of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities which is the only university department worth devoting a human life to. Non-students
suck at life (rest of CLA), or have sold
childhood dreams to sleep with numbers
or become numbers
as they brown-nose their way up the ladder
in a faceless corporation that sells shit no one even cares
about (IT, CSOM - respectively). Contrasted with the Carlson School of Management
(CSOM) and the Institute of Technology (IT), the SoM is populated by people
who posess stellar social skills, intimidating stage rapport, as well as a tangible performance talent capable of winning the respect, admiration, and jealousy of their peers. Most SoM students could
kick your ass in rocking (literally), and often jump
at the chance to tell you why your music collection proves why you're pathetic.

IT student: *no comment...too awkward to talk/too busy gaming*
non-SoM CLA student: "Would you like

School of Music student: "Everybody shut
up...i'm shredding tasty licks
and you're throwing off my vibe. Oh really, you played clarinet in high school? Good for you, Timmy. Burt Hara eats fools like
you for breakfast."
