Good to see my alma mater, Calvin College, show up on The Princeton Review's rankings of the nation's top 345 colleges (roughly 10% of the country's schools), trailing only Rice in the "best academic bang for your buck" category, and scoring 18th on "best quality of life." Just because it's four blocks away from where I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, because it's relatively conservative, and because I work among people with big-name diplomas, I forget that Calvin is one of the finest liberal arts schools anywhere, and I would have been my loss had I gone elsewhere.
