Shield your eyes, children. A fortnight after emerging on the cultural scene, a 42-page PowerPoint presentation—"An Education Beyond the Classroom: Excelling in the Realm of Horizontal Academics" more pungently known as the Duke Fuck List—continues to captivate the minds and loins of a grateful nation. Despite my dogged attempts to be scandalized by its text, I've succeeded only in being mildly titillated and with good reason. After all, bros and biddies at every university in the land, undergrads and graduate students alike, have long composed such jokey tales of conquest (except at the University of Chicago, where students do not fornicate).
I sent a few e-mails to eager college newspaper editors and assorted friends, which yielded the following slides from their respective schools:
