    SIU in Carbondale is a party school. So that is worrisome off the bat for me.

    Booo!!! Where's the 'I am not a Nugget!' avatar?!?!? I'm going on strike!

    But as far as the case is concerned, I knew a gal that went to school there and it is a party school for sure. I just hope this isn't one of those cases where the kid gets so wasted, then passes out somewhere outside and then is discovered later in a ditch or something. Do we know what the weather was like in the area when he went missing??

    And this is his twitter. His last tweets are a little disturbing.

    Wow. These are VERY interesting little NUGGETS of info. Those tweets are not good at all. I also wonder about the "Fear God" shirt. Not that it will necessarily make a difference, but I wonder if he is a Christian. I wonder only because it could possible give a clue as to the way he lives his life possibly?? I don't know....hmm.

    What does that actually mean? Obviously I get the gist, but are there more drugs/drinking that would go on in other schools? Is that a reason that people would choose to go there, do you think?

    In short, yes. When magazines/publications rank colleges for their "party school" status, SIU lands the list. I think one year it was #17 in the country from a playboy magazine poll. Sorry I don't have a link but if you google it I bet it'll pop up. (I'm about to run out the door.)

    I am about five hours North of him. I just wanted to add that the windchill has been pretty bad here. Depending where he was, you could knock anywhere from 10-20 degrees off of the temp. Maybe even more.

    Good point. I'm 6ish hours north and I can confirm. This winter has been brutal. Lots of wind advisories. School closings, etc due to unsafe wind chills.
