Good for a laugh or two:
most of those "colleges" would probably prefer to be called "Universitys" colleges are below them.
Collectively, they're called "college" so the title is correct.
Pretty funny read xD
Darn... my schools not in there ;p
Way to not get it, bro.
lol I love the university of phoenix ten years
With a puzzled look on his face an Indian boy asked, "Say, mom, why is my bigger brother named Mighty Storm?"
She told him, "Because he was conceived during a mighty storm."
Then he asked, "Why is my sister named Cornflower?"
She replied, "Well, your father and I were in a cornfield when we made her."
"And why is my other sister called Moonchild?"
"We were watching the moon landing while she was conceived.", She explained. The Mother Indian paused for a moment then asked her son, "Tell me, Torn Rubber, why are you so curious?"
P.S. You are Canadian so I guess they just call everything a University up there but in the states our schools are usually named as to how classy they are. Universities are usually fancy ones and colleges are the not so fancy ones.
Sokar, you don't have to explain yourself to someone who puts an extra U in humor.
Lol, laughed pretty hard at that one
Actually it's the same way in Canada. Since I have many online friends in the US, there were a many who referred to both as "college"... so I thought that applied everywhere, but maybe only in some states or cities.
It's the same in Canada??
I was under the impression our colleges and Universities were distinctly different? Universities offer Bachelor/Masters/PhD while colleges offer Diplomas/Certificates. The learning style in the 2 institutions is quite different. I didn't think it had anything to do with a school being classy or not. I have never heard anyone refer to a college in Canada as anything but that.
Most of them are Universities.. Including the one on the list that I got my first degree from. It was in the top 5 party schools in the country when I went there..lol It lived up to its reputation, the area I lived in was called Sin City, for good reason..
I was speaking of terminology, not substance. If it came across the wrong way, forgive me.
Yale is missing from the list. =P
Other than that, I must say, I am happy to see Harvard and Princeton high on the list, along with with the colleges quite a few douchebags from my high school went to, most of them too stupid to actually get in, and instead relying on their parents pull as alumni to get them in.
Back in New Zealand the term "college" was used for high schools, strangely enough - never anything at the university level.
