Monsters University, Now Accepting Applications

Though my interest in the latest Pixar flicks has diminished slightly since I first saw Toy Story in 1995, I still get a childlike kick out of their animated shorts (have you seen Partysaurus Rex?) and appreciate newer titles. Now, the film studio has outdone itself with Monsters University, a fictitious yet entirely believable college website created to promote the release of a Monsters, Inc. prequel this summer.

The Monsters University website is so thoroughly developed that browsing brought back memories of my college application process. Everything about the page feels real, from its Campus Map (note the university’s schools accommodate many interests, including Liberal Arts and Monstrosities and Scream Energy) to the student testimonials. There is even a sample question to help you prepare for the MATs, or Monster Aptitude Test, the University’s preferred admissions exam, not to mention scientific studies.

Whether you’re a past or present Pixar fan, take the tour of Monsters University. It’s certainly a fun distraction.
