Brief programming note:
U.S. News has discovered YouTube and is hosting a contest (with a sweet prize!) for college students to tell us, in all of your video artistry glory, "Why My School Rocks."
You have until the end of October to submit videos and you might just get a free spring break vacation for two for your troubles. For more details and legal mumbo jumbo, check out the official rules.
Be creative, and remember folks, keep it clean.
