This is a must-read for any incoming or prospective University of Chicago student. As a former student, I can attest there is a lot of graffiti like this at "The Reg," and it gives students something amusing to look at while studying. The book gives a glimpse into the minds of the students and the struggles they go through. We are as crazy, though not quite as negative, as the books makes us out to be. If you end up attending, be sure to make some graffiti of your own (you'll be at the library a lot), in case of a sequel!

"Crescat Graffiti" captures the quirky humor and volatile emotions of college students at their most creative time - in the library. They leave their jokes, quotes, poems, drawings, and conversations written on the library walls. For her book, Dombrowski photographed her favorite examples of this graffiti art and added minimal interpretation (such as translations of the words written in Russian, Arabic, Chinese, hieroglyphs, etc). The words and pictures speak for themselves and for their writers, giving a sometimes endearing, disturbing, or confusing view of college student psyches. It's an unusual and refreshing look at what students really think about while studying at one of the world's best universities.
