University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.

An interesting read if only for the care and detail that went into the package itself. The package was received by the admissions department and reportedly almost thrown out until a student worker made the discovery. Could this be some new viral marketing in the making or a student with a really unique application package? Who knows - but either way, this is pretty neat.

The Monsters University movie website is academically detailed in every way possible.The Monsters University movie website is academically detailed in every way possible.

Click around the teaser site and you'll find everything from a list of Monsters University student clubs all the way over to a Monsters University academic calendar. Not really sure what to make of the actual movie plot at this point other than its Mike and Sully in their college days presumably in some kind of Revenge of the Nerds scenario. Whatever it ends up being I'll be at the theaters wearing some sort of MU paraphernalia (which you can buy on the MU online campus store).

Ackbar, a member of the Mon Calamari species who led the Rebel Alliance ships into the Battle of Endor, appears to be the early favorite. He has more than 14,000 Facebook fans. Websites like notatrap.org -- 'It's a trap!' was his famous line -- are promoting Ackbar's candidacy.
