  1. In 1998, I was part of a student group in my religious studies department that would interview new teachers for the department. Of course the new person was interviewed by all the other faculty and heads of department and so on, but there was also us, a student group. One semester we had a young man out from the East Coast (I went to a west coast college), and he was a graduate of Harvard. We were impressed at first, so we asked him why he would want to teach at our college that was not on par with Harvard. He told us that Harvard was not the ivy league school it use to be at one time. He said that Harvard had been going downhill for a long time and had been on fumes from its previous reputation, but it wasn’t that great a school any longer. We were surprised. And that was 20 years ago. I imagine Harvard hasn’t gotten any better, but has probably gotten worse.
