College Activism Not  Dead, Just Different

College Activism Not Dead, Just Different

Some may believe that the passion that often results in student activism is dead. During recent contentious events, such as the Michael Brown shooting, people around the country became vocal on multiple sides of issue.

Developmental Curriculum Changes Explained

In an effort to help college students keep within their credit limits and save on their financial aid expenses, the state of CT passed legislation that changed the way colleges deliver developmental English and Math courses: Public Act 12-40 (PA 1240). This law asks that colleges shorten developmental sequencing, so students do not end up with too many credits that cannot be used toward graduation and will, ultimately, save some of their financial aid dollars.

Education Is a Civil Right

A priority for many colleges is cultural diversity.
