Hot, Smart and Ranked for It

hot smart and rankedWe all think we are flawless, myself included. Just walking around this campus during spring is like walking through a J. Crew catalog (and yes, the 4E wants to check you all out).

There are few top universities that can pull off the studious and fabulous lifestyle. A recent ranking by Business Insider narrowed that search down to 25, but all we really care about is who is in the final four.

That is, the final four colleges with the hottest and smartest student bodies!

Coming in at #4 is the one and only



You’re welcome.

As much as I would love to take all the credit, it’s all of you that make us such a desirable and fabulous school. And M Street. And Lau. (Read: Never Lau.)

Why is Georgetown so high up on this list?

1. We are really good at ratios. Whether it is in Calc class or on O Street, Georgetown students always know what the right numbers are. So the hot to smart ratio? That’s child’s play.

2. We spend so many hours in Lau. Sometimes we even go there at 2 a.m. on Saturday night just to walk around.

3. We spend a good amount of time at Yates. We often pretend to do our reading there too.

4. We are always out and about. The catwalk between the ICC and Lau 2 is really refreshing.

5. When it comes down to it, Georgetown always does it better.

And for those schools ahead of us? Y’all better watch your backs. Because (if you didn’t know) spring has just sprung, and you’ve seen nothing yet.


The Hot or Not List of 2013

HOT OR NOTWith only hours to go until the clock strikes midnight and our New Year’s resolutions become valid, month-long attempts at self-improvement, 2013 is drawing to a close. It’s been quite the year, Hoyas – let’s take a closer (and quirkier) look at 2013’s best and worst:

The 4E Hot or Not List of 2013

What was Hot:

1. SNL’s Obamacare-inspired sketches. I was laughing for days.

2. The basil mayonnaise now being served on the panini line in Leo’s. You can put it on anything.

3. Beyoncé dropping a surprise album. Also the phrase “I woke up like this” that came along with the album.Beyonce

4. Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fusing to create a mega-holiday: Thanksgivukkah! Latke-stuffing anyone?

4. Miley Cyrus riding both a metaphorical and literal wrecking ball.

5.  Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina becoming the 266th Pope and the first Jesuit Pope. He was also named Person of the Year by Time Magazine because of how incredible he’s turning out to be. And we’re all pretty proud of this sick pic:


6. Wisey’s is delicious.

What Was Not:

1. The regular mayonnaise at Leo’s. Ew.

2. Georgetown lost our rival, Syracuse, as the Big East reorganized. What is a university full of rowdy basketball fans to do without someone to hate? (Actually, we still hate you, Syracuse.)

3. A sizable portion of Georgetown Confessions. Especially the ones that were so long that the “Read more” button was present. Keep your anonymous proclamations short and sweet, Georgetown.

4. Miley Cyrus riding both a metaphorical and literal wrecking ball.Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball

5. Democrats and Republicans still don’t agree on a slew of issues.

6. Lau still exists.lauvert

So Leo’s still reeks, Lau is still ugly and Wisey’s can still make you fat. 2013 brought its own list of Hots and Nots on the Hilltop and 2014 is sure to bring its own, too. But hot or not, the Pope likes us guys – he really likes us!

Friday Fixat10ns: It’s Hot

Friday Fixat10ns: It’s Hot from thehoya on 8tracks.

It’s been hot out lately. And if you didn’t take our advice by going to get awesome fro-yo and milkshakes, you probably had a very sweaty week. Even though it’s the last day of our heat wave, we’ve got 10 songs for this Friday that celebrate (or at least bear) the heat and humidity.

Vamos a la Playa — Loona I wish I could have gone to la playa this week. But I didn’t. With this song, you’ll be bailando as if you actually were there.

Salt Skin — Ellie Goulding Two reasons I included this song. One — with all of the heat and humidity, everyone’s skin was pretty salty this week. Two — I’ve been occupying myself by reading this book called Salt. It’s about salt. It rocks.

Crooked Teeth — Death Cab for Cutie It was 100 degrees as we sat beneath a willow tree… Seriously, if you’re in this humidity, how could you bear to sit underneath a willow tree at that temperature?

Laredo — Band of Horses If you’ve ever been to Laredo in July, you understand this song’s inclusion on this list. It gets so hot there.

The Swimming Song — Vetiver This song is for those of you lucky ducks who spent the whole week at Volta Pool. Although it would probably be better called “The Tanning Song” if they were actually talking about Volta.

I’m in Miami Bitch — LMFAO This week was hot in more than one way. As a Thunder fan, I offer a very bitter congrats to Miami on their win last night. Maybe the Heat won because you couldn’t find anywhere without heat this week.

Tune Out — The Format The predecessors of Fun. are from Phoenix. So they, more than anyone, are experts on dealing with the heat. Just tune it out.

Fire — JMSN It’s a very small overstatement to call JMSN’s album my favorite of the year so far. This song is awesome.

Haiti — Arcade Fire I’ve been waiting a long time to put this song on a Fixat10ns playlist. This is a perfect time, seeing as it feels like Haiti outside what with all of the tropical humidity.

Hot Like Fire — The xx Need I say anymore?

Casual Thursday: Vegas Baby

It’s hot out. I know that, you know that, the entire East coast knows that. It can be hard to keep casual when you’re worried about sweating through your shirt, pants, and potentially your shoes, but it is possible.

What’s better on a hot day than a freezing cold popsicle? Answer: nothing. And when you amp it up and stick some booze in that popsicle life gets even better.

Georgetown – So Hot Right Now

Looks like Georgetown is making all the lists lately. From the most hipster to the preppiest, we’re all over the spectrum. Now we can add a new one to the list – Inside College has come out with a list of the hottest colleges in the nation, and we’re proud to say that Georgetown made the cut.

Unfortunately, the list has a misleading title, and it’s not referring to our really, really ridiculously good looks, but instead the university’s popularity with students. The experts over at Inside College say that the colleges on the list are “the place to be” for higher education.

Other schools that made the list of the 21 hottest colleges include Yale, NYU, Duke and our neighbors over at GW. A secondary list of “hot colleges” features the University of Chicago, Tufts and Stanford, to name a few.

Inside College doesn’t list the exact criteria their “experts” used to determine the hotness of a particular college, but we’re curious. Is it the D.C. area, with its prevalence of politicians and diplomats? Georgetown Day? Or maybe it actually does boil down to how attractive our student body is. What do you think makes us one of the hottest colleges in America?
