5. You have told a freshman that the school motto "Ex umbris ad lucem" really means "there is nothing left to do but get drunk".


Franklin Pierce was quoted by his chief aide after he was not renominated by his own party after only one term as president, "there is nothing left to do but get drunk."


8. Temple Grandin is our most famous alumni.
