    Newsweek compiled a list of the healthiest colleges in the United States of America. Mississippi State is ranked 3rd, mainly because of the Sanderson Center.

  • I don't see my school on the list, therefore I question this study. :P
    That aside, I'm not sure judging the athletic facilities and organic food budget are really the best indicators to factor in for a judgment of health. A lot of smaller schools could have great health, among the student population, but be more strictly academic, not so sports oriented. And as for this trojan health report card... Well, if schools are becoming well known for their STI testing, that might actually indicate more of a problem in my mind rather than qualifying it as the most healthy...

    This is daft. Who judges a college based on how 'healthy' it is. Plus the criteria is ludicrous. Academic and research pedigree, yes. Healthiness? No. It's newsweek, so no surprises on tabloid garbage. Politically they are in the right position, editorially its like reading the Sun.

    That's nothing. My college, well, it doesn't do anything like that.

    That explains why you don't have any children, Mal. Oh wait...
