Report: Four In 10 Colleges To Offer MOOCs By 2016
eCampus News
A few high-profile rejections have done nothing to doom the future of massive open online courses, according to a worldwide report. Providing access to MOOCs, in fact, is considered a necessary shift in the ever-changing higher education landscape. Amherst College offered a firm denial to MOOC provider EdX in April. Duke faculty, a few weeks later, voted down plans for the university to offer MOOC-like courses. Philosophy faculty members at San Jose State University, where MOOCs have thrived, said in an open letter that adopting MOOCs was tantamount to watering down students' college education.

College may be an emotionally exciting and challenging time for students. But if these challenges prove overwhelming, students should seek help for any mental health issues they experience. A recent study found that college students who had depression and trouble sleeping were more likely to have anxiety as well. Those students also had more trouble functioning physically and mentally.

Study Indicates College Students Prefer Casual Dress
University of Arkansas via Phys.org
Articles and books are continuously written suggesting how to dress appropriately. However, Quang Ngo, a recent University of Arkansas honors graduate from the Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, has completed research on how first impressions of college students vary from the norm regarding apparel. Previous research indicates professional dress creates a positive first impression. Universities understand the importance of how students dress for professional events and have established programs focused on helping students dress to create a positive image. Ngo's study examined how much a first impression can affect a student's point of view about a person in a brief encounter. More specifically, it focused on three questions: Do college students respond more positively to business professional dress, business casual dress or to casual dress?
