In college, I have to admit, I had a Mac.  A Mac Plus with 2MB of RAM (I put the second 1 MB SIMM in myself) and a 40 MB (yes, megabyte) external hard drive that cost me an obscene amount of money - all I knew is I never again had to swap disks when playing Lode Runner or loading Word...

I digress.  College was a great time - socially, musically, athletically, and most importantly, technically.  It defined my passions and interest in the career I have now.  I was fortunate to have a part time job in the UCSB Microcomputer lab (thanks Bill K) in which to explore, feed and enrich that interest.

Now all college students have an opportunity to experience that enrichment... talk about a cool job!  If you're not a student in college, but know one (or have one), feel free to pass along the information, link and deadline!
