I applied to Queens College in 1965 because at that time it cost $34.00 in fees per semester. I could not afford to pay for a Catholic or private college. At that time getting into QC was conisdered quite an accomplishment…a free, quality college education. I got no academic guidance from the college. While riding on the Q-27 bus with Joe Fabianski he advised me to major in Mass Communications because there was no reading involved and you got to play with the TV cameras. I had graduated from a Catholic High School in Queens and had thought I was going to be a Latin Major. Professors Konrad Gries (RIP) and Ursula Schoenhiem (who I gather is still there), of the Classics Department, quickly disabused me of the notion. The Professors had a lot of contempt for the Catholic high school students (especially the boys) who went to QC, even though the Catholic high schools were among the few schools in NYC teaching Latin. So I graduated with a degree in Mass Communications (no longer a major). Not knowing what I was involved in while I was there, I have since read about the College's background. The Protestants had their schools and colleges (Yale, Harvard, Cronell, etc.) The Catholics had their schools and colleges. Queens College had become a semi-official Jewish institution by the mid-1960's in NYC. QC was a Queens Jewish Cosa Nostra. We graduates from Catholic High Schools were interlopers. The Eudcation Department was the largest at the College; it consisted of JAPs looking to get married. During the civil unrest of the late 1960's, I was quite an aberrant fellow; I was pro-war and pro-Nixon. Fortunately I had jobs and a social life away from QC. I graduated and left Queens in 1971. I've been in California since 1973. I now enjoy looking back on my college years, but I did no feel part of the place when I was at QC.
