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

GEORGETOWN!

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.

DC? More like IQ!

Well, my fellow Hoyas, if you didn’t like living in D.C.  enough already, here’s one more reason why the experience is so great: we’re smart! (Psh. Like we didn’t know it already!) According to Fast Company, Washington, D.C. is the 6th smartest city in North America!

The rankings were based on what is called a “Smart Cities Wheel” (see here), containing six key components and three key drivers for each component. These included focuses on People, Economy, Environment, Government, Living, and Mobility.
Boston topped the list, followed by San Francisco and Seattle.

According to Fast Company writer, Boyd Cohen, “D.C. is one of the top cities in the U.S. for transit use and e-governance … [and] has been a pioneer in the adoption of new technology, including the launch of a private cloud in 2010 and the early use of mashups to become a “Geographic Information System (GIS) model city.”

D.C. was also ranked in the top five for the three of the Smart Cities Wheel components: economy, governance, and people.

We at The Fourth Edition like to think that Georgetown’s brilliant students bumped D.C. further along the list.

Stay smart, Hoyas!
