Sexist achievement awards?

President Paul Conn used the first 15 minutes of chapel in the Conn Center today to recognize the top-achieving students in every department on campus.

Sixteen students were called to the stage and presented with awards.

Of those 16, only two were men. Two.

Everyone knows more women study at Lee than men; even Ben Jones brags about this paradise of a campus in his Lee Clarion love column from time to time.

But a 7:1 ratio? That would basically ensure you could leave Lee with a wife, no matter how nerdy you are.

In reality, the ratio is closer to 6:5.

So apparently Lee's women are trading diamonds for degrees while campus men can't even spell "PCSU."

This is what the world's coming to.
