Cappello starts with the Big Three: Harvard ("the Ivy's Ivy"), Yale ("the classic Ivy"), and Princeton ("the preppy Ivy"). He then moves on to Brown ("the hip Ivy"), Dartmouth ("the rugged Ivy"), Columbia ("the urbane Ivy"), Penn ("the entrepreneurial Ivy"), and finally Cornell ("the Ivy for every man"). Each chapter is colorfully illustrated with an assortment of historic and contemporary images, including campus landscapes, portraits of alumni and current students, and classic athletic programs. His text not only describes each school's history, but also its current character and distinctiveness.Read more ›
Going to Brown and teaching at Columbia makes this book fun to read. My last sentence ( <- ) was more snobby than the book is. I recommend it to anyone interested in the Ivys, especially for parents thinking about sending their high schooler to an Ivy upon graduation.
