Where My Kids WON'T Be Going to College...

...University of Texas at Austin, named "best party school" by Princeton Review. It was number two for hard liquor use, number three for beer drinking, and number thirteen for pot smoking. Now there's something to be proud of--getting kids a head start on cirrhosis of the liver. Also, last December, a freshman there died from alcohol overdose.

Tell you what, Brigham Young University which was declared "the most 'stone cold sober' school" is looking surprisingly good about now. Okay, not really. It would be preferable for the kids to attend somewhere closer to home. Air travel is just no fun these days.

I guess that's not the kind of information they'll be putting in their brochures.

If the Mormons aren't your style several Christian schools like Grove City and Wheaton also placed in the top ten (along with several of the military academies).

How much does it cost to go to college these days? 20, 30 grand a year? Seems expensive for a resort to party at.

I'd recommend my Alma Mater but I think they've slipped in the past decades: Calvin College.
