Harvard Students don't know how to have a good time?

It seems the poor rich kids at Harvard don’t know how to have a good time.
So they have hired a czar to show them how to, according to Yahoo News.

Following complaints that it does little to promote campus social life, the Ivy League school has hired its first "fun czar" -- Zac Corker, a recent Harvard graduate whose job is to build community spirit and help stressed-out students unwind.

Corker knows a few things about kicking back. As an undergraduate, he helped organize numerous social events and put together a Web site -- www.hahvahdparties.com -- aimed at protecting students' "right to party.”

Students right to party? Does this not sound odd in it self? Makes me think “young snobs who want to be liberals don’t know how to have a good time”…. So they need training in this area now. Based on some of the comments in the article it sounds like they need help with life in general.

“Judith Kidd, associate dean at Harvard, said academics alone aren't to blame for the perceived fun deficit on campus.

"Yes, the kids work very, very hard here. And they worked very, very hard before they got here in order to get here," she said. "It's not us: They arrived needing help having fun."

And then this blithering idiots statement;

“At a party to celebrate the annual Harvard-Yale football game in November, some two dozen fans were taken to hospital and treated for alcohol-related health problems in what one student newspaper called a "Bacchanalia."

Boston Police Capt. William Evans said he witnessed students chugging hard liquor, playing drinking games, urinating in public -- in short, all the "animal house" behavior commonly associated with lesser-caliber schools.”

"It was a disgrace," Evans said. "I had officers come up to me and say they'd never seen an event so embarrassing.

"If they're going to party, that's one thing, but when they're drinking themselves into ambulances, it's a whole other thing. We're all under the impression that they're America's sharpest and brightest, but where's the common sense?"

Common sense at an Ivy League college? It seems to me they are more concern with their snobby image to protect. Folks wonder why liberals are hated so much… With this kind of training it is no small wonder.
