* DeanBitterman: Ms. Garcia-Thompson. Not only does she micromanage everything with the school, but she's also pushing a "cultural sensitivity" agenda that borders on extremism (she discusses giving an entire building to the "Department of Bisexual Asian Studies." But, who goes? The Math Department or the Hockey team?). Her extremism is to the point that her bosses are looking for an excuse to get rid of her.

* IsThisThingStillOn: When Rand starts attacking the dean [[spoiler: for getting fired (and ruining his hopes of getting his fraternity house back)]] he starts ranting about all the unwashed heathens she'd allowed to take over the campus.
