University World News
It is almost universally accepted that participation in higher education across the world will grow exponentially in the next 20 years. The OECD predicts that there will be more than 400 million students in tertiary education by 2030. What is less clear is who these students will be, what backgrounds they will come from and whether the historical patterns of inequality in higher education participation will be in any way reduced by this expansion or will worsen.

Athletics Cost Colleges, Students Millions
USA Today
College sports create undeniable campus pride and identity, but spending has increased so fast it's taking money from academics and student services. The University of Cincinnati and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, for example, added $6 million and $1.2 million, respectively, this year to prop up their already heavily subsidized sports programs and keep up in the national arms race.

Forbes

Business Insider
Four out of five college student drivers have texted while driving despite most recognizing the obvious risk, according to new research from King's College in Pennsylvania.

Five Creative Ways That Students Are Fighting Rape Culture On College Campuses
ThinkProgress
The headlines related to college campuses and sexual assault are typically negative. Over the past year, a growing list of university administrations have been accused of failing to take rape seriously, often dissuading survivors from coming forward or allowing rapists to get off with very light punishment. When students themselves get press, it's almost always for the wrong reasons.
