University of Virginia (UVA)

How many students does it take to change a light bulb at UVA?

Thirteen - ten to form a student committee to vote on whether changing light bulbs is a violation of the Honor Code, one to change the bulb, one to hold the keg that he’s standing on, and another to attribute electricity to Mr Jefferson.

What says...

The university – known to one and all as UVA (or simply "Virginia") – has possibly the most beautiful campus in the States, is situated in a quintessential Southern college town, and offers an education that, despite its public status, is nationally acclaimed. This is a school for those of you looking for a truly American educational experience, based on the doctrines of one of America’s truly great men.
