Harvard is one of the top schools in the US and one of the most renowned academic institutions in the world, but $52,000 a year and all that Crimson clout doesn’t mean anything when it comes to North American geography.

The Harvard Crimson got its ivy league peers good last week, when a reporter for the popular campus-wide publication asked them to name the capital of Canada.

Their answers are pretty pathetic, but to be fair, less than half of all Americans can name the capital of our neighbor to the North. Hell, one-third of Americans can’t even name their own vice president!
