Yeesh, that high? Business kids I've met on this campus are incredibly dim. Outliers I suppose. He's not in business anyway though.

Also, US News had the business college as 12th in the nation. Its not awful these days.

"The undergraduate and graduate accounting programs are regularly ranked as the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report. The College of Business as a whole is ranked 12th in the same rankings, as of 2012. The accounting programs also consistently rank within the top five of the Public Accounting Report. The Chronicle of Higher Education ranked the Department of Finance third in faculty scholarly research productivity."

My daughter is in kindergarten...this is so f***ing scary and sad...20 children killed. This can happen anywhere. You can't have enough security at these schools as far as I'm concerned.

That's what keeps shaking me to the core about this whole thing. I'm taking nothing...NOTHING, away from any shootings that have involved adults, college and high school students...NOTHING. Those mass shooting incidents are as tragic as any. But these are ****ing K-4th grade children. Just think about that for a second. Think about it. How is that possible? I had read as well (will re-read to try and confirm) that they were shot execution style. It's bad enough if some nut comes in and just starts firing at people aimlessly in some misguided rage, but to actually gather yourself and individually do that to children in school...I get emotional just typing about it and I'm about as callous and thick-skinned as they get given what I do for a living and see on a daily basis. I can't wrap my head around this.

This goes above and beyond other incidents, and I'm sorry and mean no disrespect to those involved in the others but this event today is in its own universe and I feel like things in this country, in one way or another, will forever be changed by what happened today be it legally, morally, emotionally, whatever. It feels like a shift. Hard for me to explain and put into words. I know atrocities against children and humanity in general are pretty commonplace in other regions of the world, but this isn't other regions of the world. This is the United States. This is home. This isn't supposed to happen to your 8 year old child when they're at school. Not here. This country, and this world, (at least mine) feels like a much lesser place today.

This even hurts me personally more than 9/11...at least there was a motive behind those attacks...but what possible motive is there to kill 20 innocent children?

They must have been marketing or management majors. What are you studying? I would have loved to check out U of I's finance program, but I was a slacker in high school. I'm more than happy with DePaul though

Screw the NHL. Let's start the NSHL. No lockouts. All awesome.

UI hockey games were the best, loved the setup of the rink with the seats hanging over the glass.

Congrats Cullk!


Hockey was the 1 thing missing from my college experience. IU's club team played at this dive park district rink 2 miles south of campus (for those who have played at 'The Spectrum' in Bridgeview, it was 5 times worse). Place had 3 rows of seating and no lobby. Plus the team was in division 2 or 3 of ACHA. Went to 1 game and it wasn't worth going back.

Purdue plays like an hour and a half away. Ridiculous.

They didn't have real hockey then or didn't talk about it at least.

A specific major wasn't tremendously important for what I want to pursue (law), so I ended up going with psych because I'm interested in it and the major requirements are pretty light.

It's been great. Finishing up my first semester this week.
