    Well, if you're trying to be an "Ivy of the South," what do you expect?

    That said, yes, this is on campus, but pretty localized (even if in a big way) to the degrees/colleges you'd expect. As for the people I've seen, guys and girls, around both my boys for the last 4 years (and yes, this is anecdotal), they are overwhelmingly conservative... but then again, they are all in majors that pay well. ;)

    I earned a 4.5 GPA in high school... please don't lump me in with those crazy bed-wetting millennials.

      That's the thing about conservatives. By nature, they don't tend to make a big splash, so you wouldn't necessarily know them :lol:

          Son #1 currently doing his online classes while consulting 30 hours per week (with pay) to his future employer... proudly wears his "Reagan/Bush" throwback sweatshirt on campus whenever he can. ;)

            When I picked up my son at UF on Saturday he was wearing a "Reagan/Bush" throwback t-shirt. (Because of the color I had at first thought it was a UF shirt.) Funny.

                LOL! I actually saw angry Krishna’s charge my frat house one day after someone shot a bottle rocket at them crossing 13th Ave. It was a quick retreat on their part!

                    Perhaps "children" would be a better term.

                      Every college has them disproportionately clustered around certain degree programs. Probably didn’t have the money to het into Flagler :)

                          Yes... and he was a great boxer in his frat... thank god there is still some "man activity" on campus. Got a problem with a brother? You challenge him to a three rounder. 4 and 0.

                                College doesn’t bring out the best in a lot of people. Some of the finest people I know are college graduates. And some of the finest people I know never sat in a college classroom.
