Brown University loves its president Ruth Simmons, according to an article in the Brown Daily Herald. Recently named one of U.S. News's "Best Leaders" (shameless self-promotion), Simmons has been described as "a star," "charismatic," "amazing," and "hardcore." The phenomenon of her celebrity has inspired "I Love Ruth" T-shirts, a move to replace the word "cool" with "Ruth," and the formation of several Facebook groups, such as "That's So Ruth" and "If You [expletive] With Ruth Simmons, You're [expletive]-ing With All Of Us."
