Do you want to go to Hogwarts? I don't even need to hear your answer. It is yes. Literally everyone alive wants to go there and become a wizard. Your mom wants to, your crazy uncle who drunkenly said all that offensive stuff at Thanksgiving wants to, birds, bees, even educated fleas want to do it.
WELL, YOU CAN'T.
Now, don't look so glum. Just because we live on Planet Muggle doesn't mean we can't pretend wizards exist and that we are among their number. There's no Hogwarts, but there is LARPing and, more importantly, the Czocha College of Wizardry.
"The what now?" you might be asking. Here's the rundown:
Czocha College of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Everyone knows of the famous Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where students study magic for seven years. It's a little less well known that when wizards have passed their N.E.W.Ts at the end of the seventh year, some of them go on to study at even higher schools of magic - the magical Colleges.
One of these is the Czocha College of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which lies hidden in the forests of Poland. Here, the students undergo a further three years of training, until they finally take their S.P.E.L.Ls (Senior Protective Enchanter's Lifelong License). At this college many young girls and boys have turned into men and women, ready for the life of witchcraft and wizardry that they are destined for.
So, basically a fake university for fake magic users. But who cares, this is awesome. Just look!
Starting Dec. 1 (which is today), you can sign up. But you should probably be quick about it if you're serious about being a wizard, since there are only 114 slots available. 280€ gets you lodging and grub, along with a wizard robe, a study book and a tie in your house color. The whole thing kicks off in Poland April 16-19, 2015.
What do you think? Do you want to go and get all Avada Kedavra on someone practicing the dark arts?
