Princeton Review’s 2008 college rankings

I was watching the CBS Early Show this morning and saw that Princeton Review has published its new list, “The Best 368 Colleges — 2008 Edition.” They rank lots of colleges in lots of different categories, including “Best Classroom Experience,” “Happiest Students,” and — new this year — “Green Honor Roll.”

Indiana’s men-only school Wabash College represented the Hoosier State well, earning honors for “Best Classroom Experience” and “Best Career/Job Placement Opportunities.”

For the whole Early Show story, go here.

TSRE boasts record numbers, Trivia Tuesdays launches tomorrow

Another Teen Summer Reading Experience has come and gone — with record-breaking numbers!  263 teens  signed up for TSRE 2008, up 67% from last year’s total, the previous record. A huge “thanks!” to all the teens who signed up, got excited about reading, and came to TSRE events. We couldn’t make the TSRE a success without you!

In other news, Trivia Tuesdays launches tomorrow with our first question! We should have it up by the time GPL opens, around 9:30 tomorrow morning. Answer early to win! And of course, look out for our next Trivia Tuesday, August 28.

Pro golfers humbled at Royal Birkdale. The rest of us comforted.

The British Open began Thursday. Top-ranked Phil Mickelson posted a 79, which is really bad, and lots of other world-class golfers struggled in the rain and 40 MPH wind. Read the whole ESPN story here.

Somehow, it makes me feel a lot better about my embarrassing scores.
