Famously annoying liberal arts college Wesleyan has a new president, Michael Roth, who’s kicked off his tenure by making nice to the freshmen, which we know because he has a blog. (Also, related: Regarding our Most Annoying Colleges poll, Roth told the Wesleyan Argus, “I don’t know that I have much to say about this. Gawker is trying to be annoying enough to get noticed (to make some money), but why even pay attention?” Hey, you know, we all have to pay the rent! And not all of us have trust funds.) The blog itself is fine; Roth seems like a nice chap, and really, how down and dirty do you expect a college president to get? But in the comments, a couple of people have taken the opportunity to let President Roth know that they don’t think old Wes is all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, one parent seems especially peeved that his child has not been recognized as the genius he or she is.
