Majoring in Business is what most BYU students do once they decide to drop out of pre-dental/pre-med/pre-MBA. Some students skip the pre-detour and move strictly to the major that will guarantee them millions of dollars in the future (they want to be wealthy like Norm). All of these business students must take Accounting 200. All Accounting 200 students watch hours of Norm Nemrow on CD (usually on fast forward—and the night before the exam deadline). Through this arduous process the entrepreneurial spirits grow to adore Norm, appreciating his quirks and style. When the students learn that Norm is wealthy they start to like him even more, and then when they discover that he served as a mission president they freak out. Smart, wealthy, and spiritual—does it get any better than that?!?!
So, just a heads up, when fellow students start talking about ‘Norm’ and how fantastic he is, just know he isn’t a student, he’s a professor.
