As Kevin Allman mentioned in a previous post, Loyola and Tulane not-so-surprisingly snagged spots on the Princeton Reviews party school list for this year.
As a student at the less famous Uptown university, this is simultaneously hilarious and embarrassing, especially since the only other lists Loyola appears on are Lots of Hard Liquor, Students Study the Least, Town-Gown Relations Are Great (or, Loyal Patrons of Area Bars) and Best College Library.
I cant help to wonder if the Princeton Review people have ever visited to the J. Edgar & Louise S. Monroe Library. Sure in pictures it looks good, with its cool computers and large-screen televisions, but its really just a thinly-veiled trading post for Adderall around finals time. Theres also an entire Facebook group devoted to getting busy (and Im not talking about studying) in the librarys vast learning facilities. It more closely resembles a crowded bar at times than it does a learning hub.
But when Im not consuming excess amounts of hard liquor or not studying in our award-winning library, Ive managed to get a pretty decent education. And because our classes are small (possibly because of low attendance ), Im afforded an intimate learning experience and close relationships with my professors, who have provided useful job connections. Overall, I feel like Ive had a quality college experience at the good value of only 30 thousand dollars a year.
(At least we didnt fare as poorly as University of New Orleans, who only made the Ugliest Campus and Dorms Like Dungeons lists. Yikes.)
