University mottos: The unofficial edition

Sample these:

... Plenty of colleges have unofficial mottos, which make their way onto T-shirts and coffee mugs. For instance, Reed College's underground slogan is "Communism, Atheism, Free Love." Students at Swarthmore College experience "Guilt Without Sex." And then there's "Where the Hell Is Grinnell?" and "The University of Chicago: Where Fun Goes to Die."

Thanks to Fabio for the link. He also very helpfully provides a link to Where Fun Comes to Die that collects unofficial slogans of the University of Chicago.
