Most folks have one big lie that they let themselves believe. Adam Walker believed that all his problems would be over if he could just become a paleontologist. So when he was accepted into graduate school at Sunshine State University in Senova, Florida, he was ecstatic.

People should be careful what they wish for. Adam found himself marooned in a pink-and-green wonderland of strange professors, campus jocks, and five-leaf clovers. Fortunately, his fellow students: Frank, Tom, Jessica, Cathy, and Susan, were there to help him understand life in a theme park university. Life can be pretty stressful when you’re walking in quaternary alluvium.
