From Minding the Campus comes this commentary by Robert Paquette at Hamilton College.

For Doubting Thomases, look no further than the eleven elite liberal arts colleges that comprise the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC), which includes Amherst, Williams, Trinity, and Wesleyan.   Not one of these eleven colleges requires undergraduates to take a single course in American history.  Even worse, a substantial majority of these eleven elite colleges do not even require that students majoring in history take any American history courses. And none of the eleven history departments requires a two-semester American history sequence for its majors.

Be careful where you send your kids to college. Don’t rely on brand name. Dig in to curriculum,  faculty, and policies on “offensive” speech which are, in reality, speech codes designed to silence students who demonstrate original and/or traditional thought and beliefs.
