I just asked students in my Hispanic Civilization class how many of them have read Cervantes's Don Quijote. I was incredibly gratified to see that a full third of the students raised their hands. Everybody else had at least heard about the novel.
When I asked the same question back at Yale, only two students raised their hands. Many of them didn't even know what I was talking about.
This proves that a) Ivy League education is extremely overrated, and b) students get better and better with every new semester.
