Student "Hopeful" He'll Pass Course He's Ditched for Two Months

Left: Not to be deterred from his goal

(Louisville, KY) The last time that Derek Ostermann attended his political science class was September 11.

"I remember it very clearly, because we were talking about all that World Trade Center stuff," he recalled, sipping a Mojito in his dorm. "Everyone was all like: 'I know exactly where I was when the plane hit the first tower,' and the professor was talking about politics and everything."

The University of Louisville freshman said that he should be "good to go" when he returns to class next week.

"I have been following the notes that [roommate] Kyle has been taking, although he usually falls asleep halfway through class," he said, acknowledging that he 'totally forgot' about the midterm and failed to turn in a required paper. "And we've got the textbook around here someplace for finals week. I'm thinking a low C, maybe a high D if I get a 100 on the final exam."

Ostermann believes that his "unconventional" approach to the class - Contemporary World Problems - will pay dividends at exam time.

"I'll be going into the test with a clean slate, you know? While everyone else has been, like, brainwashed, I'll bring a more 'real' take on contemporary world problems and shit," he said, looking over the course syllabus. "That will make my answers stand out from the rest of the pack. Professors - deep down - really appreciate a free thinker when one finally comes along."
