We’ve already heard that Brown is the happiest school in the nation. Now, according to the Huffington Post, it’s also one of the most intellectual. The HuffPo cites a study carried out by the college advice website Unigo.com, which relies on student surveys to create profiles of American schools. Brown shares the honor with liberal arts colleges like Reed and Wesleyan, as well as the University of Chicago.
Will this serve to cement Brown’s reputation as the douchiest school in America or, like so many college ranking lists, fall into obscurity, only to be picked up by overzealous high school students on College Confidential? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
From The Herald’s editorial page board yesterday.
Dear GQ editors,
We’re writing to let you know that we’re not mad. We’re sorry you think we’re douches, honestly. But we’re not mad at you for it. The feeling on campus since the release of your article hasn’t been anger, or resentment. Not even frustration. No, more than anything it’s been confusion.
A lot of people here would like to chat with you about semantics. (Yes, we use words like semantics.) It’s not that your profile of our school is wrong — (many of us ran out to the driveway and tore those peace signs right off) — we just don’t see the connection between being a smart, rich pacifist and being a douche.
