Tuition to be Cut by a Third at Elizabethtown College Next Year. Yo...

September 13, 2018

In these days of tuition increases and at times, tuition freezes, having a college announce a tuition decrease seems rather extraordinary - especially when it's dropping its price by nearly one-third.  Elizabethtown College (PA) announced on Wednesday it is moving to a new tuition model to avoid the sticker shock that can discourage prospective students from even applying to this 1,735-student Lancaster County private college.

BGSU to Take Over Operation of Mercy College

September 13, 2018

Bowling Green State University and Mercy Health have signed a letter of intent for BGSU to take over operations of Mercy College of Ohio, a move officials say will increase education opportunities in nursing and related programs in the area.  The letter, signed Monday, is the first step in what officials describe as a “two or three-year” process that would bring the 100-year-old Catholic college, its students, and faculty under the control of the public university.

Turned Away for Being Gay

Turned Away for Being Gay

September 13, 2018

A man who dropped out of a Christian institution 15 years ago will not be allowed to return after officials found out he was gay, saying he did not "adhere to biblical truths."  Gary Campbell, 35, left Clarks Summit University (PA) in 2003. He'd enrolled in 2001, knowing he was gay but believing he could change his sexuality, he has said in previous interviews. In an attempt to save money, he dropped out just six credits shy of earning his bachelor's degree and instead tried to attend a two-year college.  This fall, after 19 months of sobriety, he attempted to rejoin Clarks Summit, part of his plan to stay clean, according to news reports.

Grades: Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Grades: Don't Ask, Don't Tell

September 13, 2018

Students at Cornell University's Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management voted for grade nondisclosure, effectively immediately, after years of agitating for a policy similar to those in place at other highly selective M.B.A. programs. Under the new policy, one-, two-year, and Johnson Cornell Tech M.B.A. students can't disclose their grades to recruiters until they've been offered a full-time job. That means grade-point averages, but also individual course, assignment and exam grades. Exceptions include dual degree students, such as those enrolled in a joint law program, and those applying for jobs abroad or in nonprofits or government. Fellowship applicants also may disclose their grades.
