The New York Times exposes the TRUE RU

This shocking article about Rutgers University is the most emailed article from the New York Times website over the last two days.

Philosophy majors are making a comeback On the Banks! Just like the days when I was there in the mid-seventies, when there were some very bright (and very cute) followers of Descartes and Sartre walking around College Avenue.

I love the last line quoting sophomore Jenna Schaal-O'Connor about the unsung appeal of philosophy courses for young men.

“That whole deep existential torment,” she said. “It’s good for getting girlfriends.”

You don't have to be a football hero (but I guess that traditional route still works too).
