Notre Dame isn't in my top 20. Game day is historic, but the campus has NOTHING else to offer. Love Touchdown Jesus, but you gotta bring more to the table than that!
I went to school at Purdue and was bored out of my skull. I took road trips at least once a month to keep my sanity, but that's how I kept my sanity.
I've been there Les and I liked it, but as far as Ivy goes, Harvard, Cornell and Princeton top it for me.
Number 1 in the ivy??? How do you beat Columbia? It's in NYC!!!
I'll get there one day. My goal is to see 5 games in every major conference.
Big ten is done. Purdue, Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Northwestern, Penn State.
Never been to Madison....
Dude. Come to Nebraska. It is the gameday experience the people are awesome. If you tell them you are there to see what Nebraska is all about, they will show you a great time.
Very knowledgable and hospitable fanbase. Lincoln is underrated as well. It's a city and most don't get that. It's bigger than every campus in the SEC except for maybe one.
Teein' Off on Links
It's pronounced "Colonel," it's the highest rank in the military.
I've run into Nebraska fans before, but never been to Memorial Stadium. They are incredible as far as fans go. Very knowledgeable and EXTREMELY polite. Hard to root against the Huskers.....
Yeah didn't mean to sound like a douche there. When i think Chicago area and biz the first things that come to mind are Kellogg and UC. I didn't realize ND was strong in that respect. And I have no doubt that the alum network is mafia strong
Chicago isn't the best in the world tho. My b-school kicks its azz. No homer
Yale is pretty amazing, agreed.
Loses big points for being in New Haven tho. And Yale is full o the fairies.
SC used to be
The higher admissions standards have put a bit of a dent in that, or so I've been told
Was at UNC Halloween 2009, was kind of underwhelming honestly.
South Carolina has the best bar scene I've been to.
If you enjoy shootings/thuggery and such.
Duke is very overrated. The campus looks pretty cool, but the whole environment there seems somewhat depressing, IMO. Maybe I've only been there on bad days. Durham sucks, too.
UVA's campus is awesome. The Corner isn't as big as some other bar/downtown strip areas, but UVA isn't as big of a school either. I really enjoy the laid-back vibe of the Corner. Charlottesville food is great.
I'm biased, but no school I've been to matches UGA's downtown bar scene in a college town. Absolutely absurd. The stadium is in a great spot, as well. The campus itself does leave a little to be desired.
In terms of small colleges, Williams is cool, but I would give the nod to Washington & Lee in Lexington, VA. Beautiful old-school campus in an awesome area of the country. Great classical fraternity houses too.
Other good campuses I've been to include UNC, Vanderbilt, Alabama, Dartmouth, and Princeton's pretty cool.
UVA is beautiful. Pepperdine, sick. Stanford was nice too. Some mentioned Tennessee....meh. LSU for a night game....it's an experience for sure. If you like getting peed on having some inbred cajun on a 4 day bender fling his poo at you, you'll love a Saturday night game in Death Valley. If you don't go for that sort of thing...not so much.
Places I really want to get too eventually:
Syracuse...but only in like February. This weekend would have been epic
Any Ivy League campus in the Fall.
Michigan State has a beautiful campus.
Yale is amazing as well for the architecture, but my Harvard friends say it makes them want to puke.
I'd love to get a whiff of UGA. Only SEC campuses I've been to are Ole Rasiss and Bama. Dartmouth is really nice but it's just too out in the middle of east jesus for me, and their winters blow donkey. Same with Middlebury.
Never been to Wash and Lee, but in the vein isn't William and Mary supposed to be pretty similar?
Another school I forgot is Colgate. Great looking campus.
William and Mary is very strange, IMO. It's in a much bigger town than Lexington. The buildings and stuff are nice enough, but the campus sits right next to the Colonial Williamsburg recreation. That means that there are a bunch of people in colonial garb wandering around campus. Seriously. It's weird. They also have the highest suicide rate of any college in the country, or at least a few years ago they did.
W&L has more of a country club feel. It's smaller and has more of a party vibe to it, despite its academic standing. After spending a weekend at W&L in the spring, you will either never want to leave or be trying to bail out of town as fast as you can, if you know what I mean. It's a blast.

Washington and Lee is badass 804. My cousin went there.
Indeed. Fun fact: W&L asked to be taken out of the Princeton review party school rankings because the administration thought it was hurting their efforts to move up in academic standing. The last year they were ranked, they came in something like #5 party school, #2 beer school, and #1 liquor, at a school of 1500 kids with hardly any bars.
Haha. Isn't everyone in a frat/sorrority?
This is the correct answer. 100% biased, but I think it is by far the best, if the traditional college look is what you are going for.
Certainly the best in the region considering Blacksburg is a dump.
Ever been down south? Just wow... Bama sells out its Spring game for crying out load... dont bring that Independent ND crap around here...
Charlottesville is a great town. Been there many times.
