At long last, a ranking of unranked colleges

Gawker (a satiric website) takes a dig at college rankings and especially The Daily Beast (which takes itself somewhat more seriously) by compiling its Rankings of the Unranked.  “The 25 Most Unranked Colleges in America,” which should be read mainly for laughs, includes Savannah’s Armstrong-Atlantic University and North Georgia’s Truett-McConnell College. Transylvania was included on the list, even though it is ranked fairly high by both U.S. News and Forbes. Must be the creepy-sounding name–but you’d think Twilight fans would put it at the top of their list.

For what it’s worth, here’s Gawker’s list of the nondescript:
