Our school could beat up your school
Looks like all those hours at Yates finally paid off, as Georgetown ranked 18th in the 2006 “fittest colleges” edition of Men’s Fitness. The rankings were based on a 17-question survey that took into account student diets, life habits (i.e. smoking) and of course exercise. Sweet.
The top college, Dickinson, requires four phys ed classes for graduation (two for varsity athletes). I don’t know exactly how they operate them, but I think requiring a couple of one-credit gym classes over the course of four years isn’t such a bad idea. Cura personalis, right? Besides, I’ve seen people get winded after climbing up the Village C steps. Not good.
I have always thought we’re a pretty attractive campus overall. Now it’s a scientific fact.
