Re: Brown University

I found this line, from Ethan Wingfield, particularly interesting:

Brown is one of the most relaxed institutions there is. Students can drop out of a course on the last day of the semester and get the class erased from their records.

Perhaps the key would have been to pitch a grade-inflation angle to keeping the evangelical group on campus.

Not only does this make for a "relaxed" atmosphere, but when students drop classes at the end of the semester, it would naturally increase the time until graduation. It’s no surprise that universities would want to keep their customers purchasing their goods as long as possible.
