dude university sweatshirt Want a Ph.Dude degree? At Dude University we’ve collected the more intellectual, generally longer-running articles that deal with things Dude, Dudeist, Dudeitarian, Dudeological, and Dudeaphysical.

Any students or professors out there with articles, theses or just ordinary homework they’d like to publish here (plastic baggie not necessary)? Or even just crackpot cranks with scholarly dissertations of Dudeist genius?

Please send what you’ve got to us at duder@dudeism.com and we’ll peer-review it over a few oat sodas.
