“Getting Dressed” Is An Accredited Course At Princeton University – See List Of Other Stupid Courses In Text Below


For parents, this may help you decide to pay or not to pay for egregious tuition fees.  For students, this may be a help and an incentive to determine what college or university to attend.  For government bureaucrats in the education department, this will give you a list of courses to throw more taxpayer money at.  For college and university curriculum planners, this may give you some ideas for new courses.  For alumni who are giving money to their Alma Mater, this may give you pause for thought, and for alumni, it may make you sad to know what you missed by going to college when hard “solid” subjects were taught.  It should be duly noted, that the bulk of these subjects do not favor traditional American culture and values, and do favor the occult and various self indulgent behaviors.

The list of colleges and universities is alphabetized to make it easy to look up your particular choice or interest.  Oberlin College gets the prize which is a Dufus Award!
