Ivy League Scores Big in Third Annual Survey as Most Sexually Healthy Conference

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of Trojan(R) brand condoms today released the results of the third annual Trojan Sexual Health Report Card. Conducted by Sperling's BestPlaces, an independent research firm, the 2008 survey ranks sexual health resources and services at more than 130 colleges and universities across the country.

"Fortunately, the overwhelming majority of students polled found their health centers trustworthy, and also rated them as 'doing a good job.'"

Student opinion findings were a major factor in determining this year's rankings, with eight of the top ten schools sco
