    US Universities

    I have just read Tom Wolfe's 'I Am Charlotte Simmons', which is set in a fictional Ivy League university. Can those of you on this forum who have read the book (it's very good, those of you who haven't read it, I urge you to read it) tell me if he gives a fair representation of US university life.

    On a side note, do you know why they call it an "Ivy League University"?


    It's not because of the ivy-covered walls.


    It's because originally there were four of them and they used the Roman
    numerals to designate them... hence "I" and "V"!!

    Heard this just the other day. I always thought it was the walls!!
