School of Hard Knox

Stephen Colbert is good for the Illinois education business:
Almost a year after comedian Stephen Colbert gave the commencement address at Knox College in western Illinois, the liberal arts college has a record number of applicants. It got 2,500 applications -- 20 percent more than last year -- for 340 spots on its Galesburg campus.

The school snagged Colbert, of "The Colbert Report'' on Comedy Central, to speak to graduates last June.
Maybe we can get Jon Stewart to speak UIS?
