Majored in frugality

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 1:54 PM

U.S. News and World Report has compiled a list of the "10 most-loved" colleges and universities, measuring love by the percentage of a school's alumni that contribute money to their alma mater. The obscure (to us) Webb Institute topped the list, with 71 percent of its grads giving money back to their school. Carleton College of Northfield, Minn., was second, with 61 per cent. Princeton was third at 60 percent.

But what really caught our eye was the school at the bottom of the list. Of 1,283 schools that participated in the survey, the one with the lowest percentage of alumni giving back was the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith 0.1 percent.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
