Funny Gift for Grads: America’s Douchiest Colleges

Choosing what college to go to can be quite a daunting task for High School students. I remember pouring over the Princeton Review and campus catalogs trying to figure out what would be a good fit for me. With the stress of SAT’s and GPA’s, your junior and senior year of High School can feel like one big question mark. Thankfully, the “experts” H.L Rogers and Peter Littleton PH.D came out with a hilarious guide to inject some much needed humor into the college search.

The self-described “gleefully offensive handbook”, The Rogers & Littleton Guide to America’s Douchiest Colleges, compares colleges on their fashions, student habits such as pick-up lines, sports chants and many other important factors on the “douche” scale.  What’s great about the book is, its tongue-in cheek humor comes off as self-effacing rather than just mean-spirited. The authors acknowledge the fact that most college students are an easy target to mock. After all, most of our college days recollections don’t usually involve the most upstanding behavior.

It’s a great gag gift for any stressed out student, would-be freshman and any alumni with a since of humor.
