The 10 Colleges With The Most Polite Students

When you order a sandwich and ask for them to hold the mayo, do you say "Please?" Well, if you're a student at the University of Pennsylvania, the answer is probably yes.

GrubHub, working with Spoon University, looked into which campuses had the highest percentage of orders with special instructions containing the words "please" or "thank you."

UPenn, in the City of Brotherly Love, came in the No. 1 spot. Their Philadelphia neighbors at the University of the Sciences, Temple and Drexel universities weren't far behind. Yale University landed at the runner up slot.
