We think that humor is one of the best antidotes for stress, which is why we spent many a college midterm season checking out on-campus comedy. And given that some of today's top-notch television talents come from top-notch classrooms, our always-on-cue classmate could very well be the next Mindy Kaling. In the spirit of midterm season and in advance of Tina Fey and Paul Rudd's new film Admission (in which Fey plays a Princeton admissions rep), we've rounded up comediennes with Ivy League degrees.

- Good ol' Harvard just had their inaugural sex week, featuring events such as discussions about the Bible’s take on sex and asexuality, and even seminars on dirty talk. The goal was to provide "clarifying experiences" on sex. [DailyBeast]

Whit Stillman, director of such prep classics as Metropolitan and The Last Days of Disco, is releasing his latest film, Damsels In Distress, this April in New York and Los Angeles. We can't wait!
Renowned for critiquing the "urban haute bourgeoisie" of New York's WASPish elite, Whit is also incredibly faithful to the depiction of the upper class' behaviors and fashions. And he brought us Chloe Sevigny. In celebration of his film's imminent release, we take a close look of the man and the oeuvre.

The idea, pictures and backgrounds of leisure diving just screams summer fun." Ya it does. And where did it all start? Right here in the Hamptons! [Photo via]
Via la.guestofaguest.com: Idiotic school spirit is a tradition as old as education itself, but Ivy Leaguers have long been above it all, instead partaking in the bawdy revelry of a good Chaucer verse. One wouldn't lower himself to actually getting inked with his alma mater. You wouldn't wear your letter jacket forever...or would you? MORE>>>
Idiotic displays of school spirit: a tradition as old as education itself! But while we expect a certain degree of inane chanting, light rioting, and tree-poisoning at our nation's state schools, the insufferable eggheads of the Ivy League have long hovered above it all, looking down their upturned noses at the disgraceful enthusiasm of the vulgarian set. They know that having real fun in college involves sophisticated pleasures, like the bawdy revelry of a good Chaucer verse or one or two, but never three, glasses of well-aged Port. A Man of Harvard would never lower himself to splashing the name of his fair alma mater on his body like some skanky plebe from BU, would he? More»
