Finally, a college ranking that makes sense. After Georgetown was profiled as one of the ten most hipster colleges in the country, we have now made the cut as one of the preppiest colleges in the country as well, according to The Huffington Post. And how couldn’t we? Even as I write this post in the ICC, I see at least four girls clutching Vineyard Vines bags, three people wearing Sperry’s, and even more preppy scarves, coats and boots.
The Huffington Post points out that our surroundings are conducive to the preppiness as well. Georgetown, after all, is frequented by the very people that we as prepsters try to become — Senators, Presidents, D.C. socialites, etc. — and by the stores where we as prepsters love to shop, including Vineyard Vines, Lacoste and Rugby.
So what’s the most telling sign of our preppiness? The Huffington Post notes that “all it takes is one trip to The Tombs … to realize students here like to imagine they’re living in a real life version of the Social Network.” Is it possible, then, that we are too preppy?
Other schools that made the cut included the University of Virginia, Boston College, Wheaton College, Cornell, Ohio State and Alabama.
