    There doesn't seem to be any truth to the rumour that Tim Matheson, Peter Riegert and the late John Belushi will be among those people awarded honourary degrees. :D


    Dedicated to teaching students how the music industry works and how to break into the business, George Jones University will assemble its first 3-day session in late March, school officials said Wednesday.

    The kickoff session, which likely will be held at Jones' Nashville-area home, will be followed by similar quarterly seminars.


    Besides Jones, the school plans to bring in guest lecturers such as Ralph Emery, Tom T. Hall and Hank Williams Jr.

    Forgot to add this gem...

    George Jones U even has a mascot it got from the singer's nickname, a possum.

    What the hell is Hank Jr. going to teach them? I'm sure they already know how to drink.

    Thought maybe you had mis-typed and you meant to start a thread on Bob Jones University in SC. That's a scary place.
  9. One of my high school classmates went to school there.

    (Surprise!) He's a preacher.

    Wasn't that the one that didn't allow interracial dating?

    Yep. And don't dare come out of the closet while in school.
    A graf from the student's expectations web page:

    Dating and Mixed Groups
    We want students to have wholesome social opportunities in a setting that provides accountability for biblical requirements of purity. It is with this in mind that we chaperon campus activities where men and women students are present and require a chaperon when students date or interact in a mixed group off campus.

    Students may work in town until 10:25 pm on weekdays and midnight on weekends. Freshmen must have a prayer captain, assistant prayer captain, or upperclassman with them. Sophomores and upperclassmen may work alone.
    Freshmen and sophomores may not use their vehicles to go to and from work.
    Students may not serve alcoholic beverages when waiting tables at restaurants.
    Students may not do house-to-house sales anywhere in the Greenville area. Students offering services to the community must have a retail license or have clearance from the Dean of Students to do door-to-door solicitation for their services.
    Students may not miss nightly prayer meetings on weekdays.
