The College of Cthulu

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010 by

Haverhill’s greatest academic claim to fame may just be fiction.

World-renowned scary story writer H.P. Lovecraft apparently based his imaginary campus, Miskatonic University, on the now-defunct but still-lovely Bradford College.

No more pencils, no more books

If you wanted to attend Bradford College – it’s too late – but fortunately, for those of you interested in occult-like-things, MU is still taking applications.

And for residents who live on that side of the river – if you hear some scary sounds late at night, don’t worry, it’s just Cthulu coming to get you.

And he's hungry.

In honor of our fictional institution of higher learning – I hearby petition to change the mascot of Haverhill High to The Fighting Cephalopods.

Because that would be awesome.

Go Pods go!
