Reuters
Leading Asian universities are catching up with their competitors in Britain and the United States in rankings, measuring everything from reputation to research funding. The top institutions in Japan, South Korea, China and Singapore generally rose in the annual index published by Britain's Times Higher Education magazine, continuing a "power shift from West to East," its rankings editor Phil Baty said. "More Asian institutions are nipping at the heels of the best in the West, increasingly occupying world top 50 places and showing no signs of letting up," Baty said in a statement.

Students In Britain Are Drawn To U.S. Colleges
The New York Times
The line started at Kensington Town Hall and continued up the stairs, across the plaza, onto the sidewalk and halfway around the block. The hall has been the scene of concerts, dances, debates and even white collar boxing matches, but the crowd this time was after something different: an American college education. The U.S.-U.K. Fulbright Commission's American college fair was once a sleepy single-day event. No longer. This year more than 5,000 visitors registered for the fair on Sept. 27 and 28 — 25 percent more than last year. "You'd think we were releasing a new iPhone," said Lauren Welch, head of advising for the commission, which was founded in 1948 to foster educational exchanges between the United States and Britain.

Binge Drinking A Dangerous Fad Among College Students
The Stylus
A recent study published in Substance Use and Misuse revealed to everyone's very little surprise that alcohol drinkers often over pour. A standard serving size for a glass of wine is five ounces according to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, but researchers at Iowa State and Cornell University have found that people tend to not know how much wine they are consuming. The study found that people pour 10 to 12 percent more wine into the glass than serving sizes call for, even when informed they are doing so.
