The October issue of Men's Fitness Magazine ranks the fittest and fattest college campuses. Brigham Young University was crowned fittest, followed by the University of California, Santa Barbara; Boston University; University of Vermont; and Northwestern University in Evanston. Southern Illinois University at Carbondale comes in as one of the Nation's fattest. It's been a good year for Chicago's colleges and rankings: U.S News & World Report ranked Loyola University Chicago the "Best Value" and The University of Chicago is in the running to be voted one of The Seven Wonders of Chicago.
