Why Student Affairs Professionals will survive the Zombie Apocalypse [Infographic]

by Jess Samuels (@jessmsamuels)

Have you ever been watching a zombie movie or TV show and wondered how you would fair if you were stuck in the same situation?  I have often, and have recently come to the conclusion that as student affairs professionals we are better off than the average person when it comes to living in a post-apocalyptic world.  We’ve got the the resources and the experience, because let’s face it, come April we all feel like zombies (@clconzen).

Do you know more SAPro survival skills? Post them on the comments below!  Also, I HIGHLY suggest checking out the Disaster Preparedness Simulation Exercise created by a UF employee in 2009.  Read all about the controversy is caused on the SunSentinel.com.  In that regard, I would like to say that this was created in jest and is in no way associated with the college at which I work.

Below this infographic I have listed all of the great tweets that contributed to the creation of this post.  Thank you to everyone who gave me their ideas!  A enlarged version of the converted H1N1 sign is also posted below.

    One time, I was “road raged” on the way to work at an armored car
    company in Portland, Oregon. The other driver was furious when I cut him
    off in a last minute lane change before a tunnel. He turned on his high
    beams, honked his horn for the entire tunnel length, and then tried to
    run me off of highway 405 by repeatedly moving into my lane, laterally. I
    had a loaded .357 Magnum and had resolved if he made impact
    (collision), I would have to shoot him. Luckily he exited the road
