Christian college, correctional facility, or both? A short quiz

What’s in a name? Really, maybe, not very much at all.

Sometimes, it seems, the incongruities are downright stark. Over the years, I’ve curated a personal collection of hilarious and unlikely place-names, and in the fullness of time, I’ve come to observe that the name-don’t-match phenomenon is rather marked among our nation’s prisons and Christian colleges. Herewith, a cross-section. Can you tell the reverent from the reprobates? Scroll below picture for answers.
