They Can Talk the Talk

Hey Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia fans, Bleacher Report just called you obnoxious and narrow-minded and gave you the prime real estate on the Crazy Pedestal. What are you going to do about it?

The Tasty 20

All of you youngsters still deciding where you want to attend college should start giving Bates College some serious consideration (that is, if you're smart enough and can afford it). Yesterday, we found out the small liberal arts school offers a class on the Red Sox, and today we've discovered it's got some of the best on-campus food in the nation.

A Comic Education

Here's a fine example of a university using its funds to give the people what they want: Portland State University has teamed with Dark Horse Comics to open the country's first comic book archive.
