Some great back-to-school videos

In addition to this blog, I also run a Tumblr at http://ralphehanson.tumblr.com.  I use that to post quotes, photos, videos and the like with little comment or context.

Here are a few videos I’ve posted there lately that would make great pre-class entertainment (that’s what I use them for).  Students, you may just find them fun.

    Regarding “Top Party School” WVU. Is there any research indicating whether this rating appears to increase/decrease enrollment?
    Thanks

    The one thing we know is that it can attract some unwanted attention. Back in the 1990s, a large corporate newsletter published a story with the headline “Don’t Send Your Child To These Schools.” The list were the Top 10 Party Schools.

    There may be an effect, but I don’t know of research on it. I do know that the party schools tend to be big state schools with good reputations and good athletic programs.

    Actually, I checked one random school that was the top party school several years ago to see if indeed the enrollment increased/decreased after receiving such recognition. To my surprise, enrollment increased albiet slightly. Penn State was the top party school in 2009 with a slight increase in 2010 enrollment.
