Playboy magazine lauds Oregon State class on insects

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon State University course about insects has been named the best college class in the country — by Playboy magazine.

 

The Oregonian reports that Playboy was impressed by the way the course combines humor with learning. It's called "Far Side Entomology," and professor Michael Burgett infests his lectures with Gary Larsen's "Far Side" cartoons featuring insects.

It was the second time a national publication has profiled the class in as many years. Last time, it was The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Burgett says he's still awaiting a note of congratulations from OSU's front office.
