Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Lakeside, a school perched on the edge of San Francisco, is experiencing an identity crisis. John Gudewill is recruited as president to save the college from possible closure -- but he is flummoxed at every turn. The faculty, led by secretive English professor Eliot Blanc, is determined to unionize. The alumni want Lakeside to return to its former status as a women-only college. Meanwhile, Sister Magdalena, the college's infamous artist, is waging war against corporate America through her art, and the students are engaging in their own warfare through sit-ins and protests. With the college besieged on all sides, what is the new president to do?
