TIP as a metaphor for life

As has been discovered in many of the classes oriented around determining how to live a happy life, the three weeks the TIPster spends at TIP can be understood as analogous to a single lifetime.

The mid-term crisis often experience by primarily fourth-year TIPsters is one of the more obvious examples of the similarities.

The conclusion drawn by Svusch as to how to handle the brevity of the Term involves the embracing of all things TIP (down to the hottest Durham Bull's game) without reservation, and one's impending "death" (shouted bravely in singing of American Pie) with equal eagerness.

The fact that many TIPsters attend TIP several consecutive years can be compared to reincarnation.
