“I had tried to go to college, and I didn’t really fit in. I went to a real narrow-minded school where people gave me a lot of trouble, and I was hounded off the campus – I just looked different and acted different, so I left school.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I got through college realizing business was repugnant.”

 

Bruce McCulloch

“After college, I wanted to learned about myself as an American, so I left the United States and went to Japan.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“I had a tremendous horror of going into the Army. That is probably why I went to college for so long.”

 

Bruce Conner

“It takes most men five years to recover from a college education, and to learn that poetry is as vital to thinking as knowledge.”

Brooks Atkinson

“I really missed going to college. I missed not having that education and that experience.”

Brooklyn Decker

“I dropped out of college when I was 18 to be in a band.”

 

Brody Jenner

“I definitely think there’s a lot of pressure for teenaged girls and guys to hook up on prom. I think it comes with the belief that you have to lose your virginity before you go to college. It’s a coming of age thing. I think it’s really sad because it has nothing to do with what you want and everything to do with peer pressure. But it comes with the territory of prom. Thankfully more and more kids are knowing their limits, and I think we’re raising kids to be really good people, and they’re realizing that they don’t need to do it just because.”

 

Brittany Snow

“Then in college, besides economics, I also majored in studio art and got involved in photography and making short films and acting. But I didn’t know you could make a living that way.”

 

Brit Marling

“When my friends who were college age took a year off of school, they’d play in Weatherbox, or between high school and college. People always joined on a short-term basis and I did things one day at a time, I guess. There was never a big plan when someone was joining. They were never joining on a full-time membership basis. Since then, we just deal with it. I’d like to have a band that’s a total constant, but it’s probably not realistic at some point.”

 

Brian Warren

“If I weren’t playing baseball, I would be a radio or sports broadcaster. In college at South Carolina I did some stuff with the radio station and really liked it.”

 

Brian Roberts

“I love dancing, but I’m not that good of a singer. I sang in punk rock bands in high school and college and stuff, but that mostly involved lots of screaming.”

 

Brian Dietzen

“I wanted to be a singer. I wanted to be a musician. I wanted to travel and write songs and be a good songwriter. It came to me slowly after college.”

Brett Dennen

“I went to college in Vermont, and then stayed in the East Coast.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“What else is there to do in college except drink beer or slit one’s wrists?”

Bret Easton Ellis

“I went to New York out of college, and in my day, we were told that was the way you became a good actor. You don’t go to Hollywood, you go straight to New York and work in the theater. So that’s what most of the people I knew did.”

Brent Spiner

“Warren Street was at the high end of the New Romantic scene. They were mostly college art students and people who knew top designers.”

 

Boy George

“There’s been a lot of stage combat over the years, and I’ve loved it. Started in college with William Shakespeare. I’ve always liked the active things.”

 

Brad Leland

“Warren Street was at the high end of the New Romantic scene. They were mostly college art students and people who knew top designers.”
