|The College of Life and Offices of the Guiding Star|
Koresh rarely speaks with reporters or outsiders of any sort. He will, however, gladly speak with potential donors and members of the community. I arrived at the College of Life building on Cottage Grove Avenue to listen to one of Dr. Teed's lectures, having paid my enrollment fee in advance.
The College of Life is actually a degree granting institution, certified by the state of Illinois. The entry fee is $30.00--nearly a month's wage for the average laborer, assuming the typical sixty hour work week. Needless to say, most of those who have enrolled are not from the laboring class. If you maintain your enrollment for the full month, you will be granted a diploma, along with the right to hand over all of your worldly possessions and become a resident of the community.
