Hosting a Homeless Encampment Changed Our University

Hosting a Homeless Encampment Changed Our University

May 16, 2018

Karen A. Snedker, associate professor of sociology, and Jennifer McKinney, professor of sociology, at Seattle Pacific University, write:  Tent encampments for those who are homeless are emerging across urban areas as a response to the large number of people who lack permanent shelter. In recent years, our institution, Seattle Pacific University, and other area colleges have hosted several of these "tent cities," offering important lessons for us, our students, and the residents who temporarily have become our neighbors.

The Ivy League School That Won't Talk About Its Most Famous Graduate

The Ivy League School That Won't Talk About Its Most Famous Graduate

May 15, 2018

For 176 years, William Henry Harrison was the only president the University of Pennsylvania had any kind of claim on, and even then it was kind of a stretch. As a student, Harrison did a brief stint at Penn, but he didn’t stay long enough to get a degree. And he only lasted a month in office, dying of pneumonia in April of 1841. Ever since then, Penn has waited, as Harvard, Yale, and its other Ivy League peers sent alumnus after alumnus to the Oval Office.
