Good Student/Bad Student: American Pride vs. Northwestern Gaffe

By  |  0 Comments

We want you to be good. On the other hand, we can't help but feed into your bad drama. Of course the college atmosphere breeds naughty behavior and the media will always cover the incidents that stem from alcohol-induced hijinks. At the same time, we believe college students are changing the world every day. In good student/bad student, we give you the best of both:


Soccer Fans Rep Their Colleges in Brazil

If you’ve been watching the World Cup – and if you haven’t, there’s no hope for you – the last thing you might have noticed was the surprising prevalence of American college flags in the crowd.

And yet, there they are. U.S. soccer fans that made their way to Brazil are not only rooting hard for their country, but also showing off their college pride.

Flags for Texas A&M, South Carolina, Auburn, Washington State and Michigan have all been spotted at multiple games, and some not even involving the U.S.

Say it with me now: ‘MURICA.


Northwestern Journalism School Can’t Spell

At the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, the smallest mistake on an article for class can result in a failing grade, dubbed the “Merrill F.”

Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism clearly doesn’t have the same high standards. Just take a look at its diplomas:



Either the “Medill F” doesn’t carry quite the same weight as a Merrill F, or this is just a hilariously embarrassing mistake from one of the top journalism programs in the country.

Medill: next time you don’t know how to spell a word, just look it up in the AP Stylebook! It has all the answers, trust me.
