    Very interesting. Thank you for this.

    Does Centre College not ROCK?????

    “You’re Right on, Monica”

    Yes, indeed, Centre is one of the few real colleges in KY. It typically has the highest per capita percentage of alumni contributions (a sure sign of satisfaction with one’s alma mater) than most any school in the nation. Eat your hearts out, UofL & UK!

    The academic performance of the public universities in this state in terms of graduation w/in 6 years IS APPAULING. The General Assembly should mandate the suspension of all extra-curricular activities INCLUDING THE ATHLETIC PROGRAMS until these faux universities get their academic act together. THESE GRADUATION RATES ARE PREPOSTEROUS — PARTICULARLY WHEN ONE ACCEPTS THE FACT THAT THESE UNIVERSITIES AREN’T ACADEMICALLY DEMANDING IN THE FIRST PLACE.
