Whenever the Mad Money Back to School tour visits one of America's prestigious universities, Cramer always talks with as many young people as possible.

"I enjoy nothing more than meeting the fabulous students," Cramer said. "It's inspiring to see their passion and their visions for the future."

And during his jaunt to Villanova on April 25th, Cramer talked with some of the universities most promising young financial minds. "They are part of Villanova University's Equities Society," Cramer explained, "they research and manage funds."

Following are their picks and Cramer's evaluation:

Alex from California: eBay (EBAY)

Cramer said this is a tough stock, however Paypal may be worth the price of admission.

Christian from New Jersey: DR Horton (DHI)

Cramer said this is a great story. If it comes in, Cramer is a buyer as a play on the housing renaissance.

Aaron from Maryland: Schlumberger (SLB):

Cramer said he likes the stock. He believes the Gulf of Mexico is really coming back and Schlumberger is best of breed. "I'm a buyer around $70 or $71," he said.

Nick from New York: GNC Holdings (GNC)

Although Cramer likes the company he's a little cautious at current levels. He suggests waiting for earnings then making a decision.
