Another reason to hate Duke

July 20, 2004 at 12:02 PM
iPods are cool, now Duke U is too

When I got to UT I received several crappy t-shirts and stole like half a dozen UTLD plastic cups, other than that I got bupkis. Sure some say you pick a college based on things like educational reputation, faculty to student ratio, and cost. But we all know we want to attend the school where you can get the best free crap.

As if being consistently a Final Four team in basketball wasn't enough, Duke University has given us all another reason to despise them. This fall incoming Duke freshmen will each receive free iPods, all 1,650 of them. I bet that's sure to piss off the upperclassmen, expect all sorts of iPod-related hazing in the fraternities on campus. The university is loading the players with things like campus maps and orientation information, and then throughout the year they'll be able to download lectures and audio books. My guess though is that there will be far more illegal Hoobastank songs on them than Calculus lectures. Duke has even hired an extra technology specialist as part of the program. That sounds like a fun job, dealing with rich brats whose free iPod just had it's harddrive erased.

These freshmen probably pay alot more to go to Duke than to crappy public schools like UT ;-)
A 250 gift is nothing AND it probably comes out of their student fees...

A crappy public school is better than attending a crappy AND expensive private school.

You're just jealous because they didn't have to pay for their iPods.
