Is Macalester College obsessed with squirrels?

Macalester College has made The Huffington Post's list of "Colleges Most Obsessed With Squirrels."

Wow, OK.

I'm not sure what to say.

But the Post does. Here it quotes from a college-related blog:

Students have had squirrels jump on their feet, seen the critters refuse to move away from them and display "big and bold personalities." Some students consider them the unofficial mascot of the college. "I feel like they have more of a conspiracy going on," Alana Horton said. "If you walk across campus, at least five squirrels will be there looking at you, like they're coordinated."
