Most Annoying Liberal Arts College

Oh dear. It seems we’ve been given the dubious honor of being listed among the nation’s Most Annoying Liberal Arts Colleges by Gawker. The voting begins tomorrow. Though, fortunately, they are accepting write-ins if anyone’s interested in mentioning our oft-neglected NESCAC brethren. I mean, they have their tired stereotypes, too, you know.

  • Bard: Upstate New York haven for rich, disaffected filmmakers, writers, grade-skippers and artists.
  • Bennington: Hippie haven in Vermont with optional grades and lots of “creative” types. (Bonus: Bret Easton Ellis went there. Then, so did Jared Paul Stern.)
  • Brown (honorary liberal arts college): Eurotrash and rich hipster magnet in Providence, R.I.
  • Hampshire: This “non-traditional” college in Amherst, MA calls itself “experimenting.” Whatever that means.
  • Kenyon: There’s not much to do here besides go drink in the Ohio woods. Also, maybe too preppy for our list, maybe.
  • Oberlin: Asked and answered.
  • Reed: They’re smarter than you. Just ask. Even though they’re baked. Also: West Coast represent!
  • Sarah Lawrence: Breeding ground of coked-up artsy heiresses and the lone faggy heir.
  • Smith: Lesbians and the LUGS who love them.
  • Vassar: Favorite of budding editorial assistants everywhere. Male population: See under Sarah Lawrence.
  • Wesleyan: Our instinctive favorite to take the crown, if only because if we have to hear about one more awesome party at Eclectic we might slit our wrists. Also, heroin is all fun and games until you can’t get out of rehab, isn’t it.
  • EDIT: Clearly Vassar wants the glory just that badly.

    EDIT 2: Okay, some Wesleyan students too. (WHY??)

    …Guys. This is not a pissing contest we want to win.

      I kind of like Wesleyan being on that list. If it were called “Most Progressive Liberal Arts Colleges in the U.S.” it might not look any different (maybe an add of St. John’s, New College of Florida, et cetera.) I’m not even really sure what the concept is… the common themes seem to be arts, drugs, and homosexuality.

      Yeah, I propose we all vote for Wesleyan (half ironically?) and blow the competition away.Also, isn’t cocaine the Eclectic thing, not heroin? Heroin’s not high class enough.

      I think we have to win this one. We already proved we have the best blog–now to be Most Annoying.
