Pitzer Faculty Votes to End Israel Study Abroad

Pitzer Faculty Votes to End Israel Study Abroad

November 27, 2018

Earlier this month on Nov. 8, the Pitzer College faculty voted on and passed two motions concerning the college’s relationship with Israel, including one to suspend its study abroad program with the University of Haifa in Israel. The other motion passed was a dissention from the decision of the college’s Board of Trustees to nullify a Pitzer Student Senate resolution, which was aimed at adopting aspects of the “Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions” (BDS) movement.

Why Remind Poor Students That They Are Poor?

Why Remind Poor Students That They Are Poor?

November 26, 2018

"Prior-prior year" was one of the major student aid reforms of the Obama administration. To encourage students to apply for financial aid earlier, the rules were changed so that applicants could use the previous year's income data instead of waiting to file federal taxes and calculate the current year's income. The idea behind "prior-prior year" is that most families that are poor don't suddenly become wealthy, or even middle class, in a short period of time. Not many win the lottery (literally or figuratively), so the odds are overwhelming that someone who was eligible for aid a year ago is still eligible.  A similar idea is behind a new aid policy at Trinity College of Connecticut.

Despite Legalization, Marijuana Still Not Welcome on College Campus

Despite Legalization, Marijuana Still Not Welcome on College Campus

November 26, 2018

Marijuana is a big part of campus life, but it’s still not welcome.  Massachusetts colleges and universities prohibit marijuana on campuses across the state, despite voters approving recreational marijuana more than two years ago.  The reasons to ban it vary, but schools by and large invoke federal law and landlord status to make sure the drug -- ever-popular among college students -- is not allowed.

What’s Next for Harvard’s Affirmative Action Case? It’s Complicated

What’s Next for Harvard’s Affirmative Action Case? It’s Complicated

November 26, 2018

All sides have prepared for the Harvard University (MA) admissions case to land in front of the Supreme Court, with the justices ultimately weighing in on the future of affirmative action for the next generation of college students. But it may not be that simple. Several legal experts say it’s possible that the justices may give the case a pass, given the complexity of the arguments, the racially tense climate of the country, and the fact that they’ve grappled with the issue as recently as 2016.
