The five most spoiled college campuses in America2/27/2013
We're not jealous or anything but —
5. BOWDOIN COLLEGE, Brunswick, Maine
In college, we used to eat a bucket of ice cream with a Powerbar for a spoon. At Bowdoin, students aren't so lucky. After paying $6,390 for the required meal plan, typical meals for freshmen include shrimp cakes, spicy tomato chutney, and Finnan Haddie (That's smoked haddock in a cream sauce, and yes, we had to look it up too).
4. SMITH COLLEGE, Northampton, Mass.
Don’t think you’re cut out for life in the dorms? Go to Smith College, where they don’t even have them. Students are required to live in one of the 35 on-campus houses, each of which hosts anywhere from 10 to 100 students. The houses are known to host regular tea-parties and candlelit dinners with faculty, if you’re into such fine things.
3. PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY, Malibu, Calif.
Maybe going to a college that looks more like a country club on a hill above the ocean in Malibu is not as awesome as it sounds, or maybe Pepperdine students are just completely spoiled.
2. LONG ISLAND UNIVERSITY, Brookville, N.Y.
This school hands out iPads to all their incoming freshman just for showing up (and, you know, paying tuition). This is a true undergrad perk, as graduate students have to pay a whopping reduced price of $250 for their iPads. The nerve.
1. HIGH POINT UNIVERSITY, High Point, N.C.
High Point wins it all. The campus has an ice cream truck, live music in the dining hall five nights a week, free snacks between classes, valet parking, and classical music playing on the promenade between passing periods. Oh, and also, every student receives a HAND-DELIVERED birthday card and Starbucks gift card on his or her birthday because CLEARLY High Point University students are JUST THAT SPECIAL.
So yeah, we're really not jealous at all.
