Canadians Don't Know What Vassar Is

The Toronto Star mentions Eric Weiner '12 in an article about studying abroad in St. Petersburg, but the paper clearly has no idea what Vassar is.

“'Forget about what’s on the walls, look up and sometimes the rooms themselves are more amazing than the artwork,' says Eric Weiner, a student at Vassar University in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., who is spending this semester in St. Petersburg studying art history and Russian culture."

And later...

"The World Economic Forum holds an annual meeting here, and more and more students like the Ivy Leaguers from Vassar show up for weeks or months at a time."

That's what we are. University ivy leaguers.
