The college would often get coils of black bar steel rebar tie wire from many building suppliers over the years, leaving quite a bit of backlog in the art department’s supply shed
When I decided to attend a liberal arts college down the road from my house, I thought I was making a huge compromise, but i was going to this tiny college instead of this big out-of-state college that is in the top 20 of the whole entire country. I have wanted to go to that college since I was a child, as it is in the neighborhood where I was born and the same college my Grandfather attended. Getting in as a potential undergrad was one of the most pride-inducing moments of my entire life. At the same time, I had to be mature and realize that my dream college cost too much money, the potential debt of just a single school year at that college would dwarf the total debt I had after more than three years at the small liberal arts college down the road from my house. While it’s still daunting to see that amount of debt on my credit report, it’s a lot better than $200,000. That’s roughly how much money it would have cost if I had gone to this huge state college instead of the cheap liberal arts college near my parents’ house. I loved my time there and the many classes I had a occasion to attend while I was in my more than three years of undergraduate college. I loved the art classes, especially sculpting. Once we showed our proficiency with cardboard sculpting, we l gained welding and started sculpting with steel rebar tie wire. The college would often get coils of black bar steel rebar tie wire from many building suppliers over the years, leaving quite a bit of backlog in the art department’s supply shed. I had a lot of fun heating, bending, and welding the steel rebar into many shapes.
