Too busy settling into your dorm room to catch the latest college news? We’ve got you covered with this nifty wrap up we’ve compiled just for you.
1. Higher Tuition Costs = Less Student Debt?
2. Johnny Football Might As Well Just Get His Own Reality TV Show.
With the Johnny Manziel scandal all “cleared up” and “squared away” Saturday’s game between Texas A&M and University of Alabama has most football fanatics in a Friday-night frenzy (yes I know the game’s actually Saturday, but I love Friday Night Lights and therefore associate all football games with Fridays). To add flame to this fire CBS announced this week that they will feature a “Johnny Manziel Cam” to cover the Heisman Trophy winner’s every move during the game. Of course some would argue that giving that much attention to a sophomore player who almost lost everything by being too-eager to sign autographs earlier this year is a bad move, but hey, it’s not like his head can get any bigger anyway… right?
3. Concealed Weapons Might Be Coming to a Campus Near You.
4. Students Stand for Syria.
Across the country students are protesting President Obama’s call for a military strike against Syria. With thousands of Syrian students studying abroad in the U.S. it’s no wonder that college students everywhere are trying to make a stand for peace in our dealings with this Middle Eastern country. At Brown University students, carrying drums and signs, marched through campus and Providence urging the U.S. to rethink military strikes in favor of peace. They’re encouraging their peers to contact their representatives to tell them how they feel about this issue, and it may not seem like much, but every vote for peace in Syria means something to the Syrian students among us.
