Jayce Scott


Profile: Jayce Scott is the perennial 24 year old college student. For eight years…seriously, he took almost decade to finish undergrad at Texas A&M University…300 credit hours and a multitude of majors. They based the movie Van Wilder off of him. And don’t be so quick to think that might or might not have been a joke. Still, he did not have his fill of the matriculation path and peoples. Jayce went to the U.K. to get my Masters in Archaeology. The schooling and subsequent work, were chances to travel, see the world, play in the dirt and literally stay in the trenches with college kids of all ages, nationalities and stations in life. But unless you find a pot of gold, archaeology is a poor paying job. As the professional production of his life played out, Jayce would occasionally pop out for a while to do fundraising and development work for art organizations such as museums, theatres, symphonies, etc. Galas are his specialty. If you ever want a good laugh, he can regale you with the story of the Devil and her Prada at a rather strange nudey fashionista “pool party” that Jayce coordinated. Throughout it all, Jayce always has been the teller of tales regarding his college experiences…which in his case were his twenties and had all the quarter life triumphs and tragedies. After all those years, as a student, higher education professional, a fundraising thief, tiny little college writer and explorer in present and past cultures…he developed unique lenses on the Millennials and Gen Xer’s, the quarter-life crisis types. He has a profound understanding and continual need to keep in the know of the microcosm the quarter lifers created, defined and released into the wilds of the “real world.”
