My brother went there. Partied all the time, even brought alcohol into class and several occasions.

He's a veterinarian now.

Proud Badger here, twice over. Currently making less than I should, due to a new ceo who slashed 20% off everyone's salary so he can hire a sales guy who doesn't do anything.

I'm outta here as soon as this project is over.

DePauw is basically a CEO factory -- I'm not mid-career yet so I guess I have a few years and thousands of dollars to go. I also don't remember it being quite that much of a party school. Does anyone know where the schools appear on their respective individual lists (The actual Party School list and Make a Bunch of Money list)?

'07 UIUC alum here... great engineering school + largest greek system = fun for all. Even if you weren't part of the greek system you probably knew someone that was and had access to all kinds of parties. The one thing I'll never get over though, is the fact that while I struggled to get a B average for a computer engineering degree there were guys getting straight A's and partying harder than I ever did. It quickly humbled me.

It seemed to me that the smartest farkers were the ones that partied the hardest. The weirdest thing I've ever seen is a buddy of mine, who routinely got blackout drunk, on C-SPAN a couple years later asking questions at a White House briefing. It's insane!
