This week, USC’s new Early Action notification plan, mental health on college campuses, more news from the college admissions scandal, and a new campus at the University of Denver.
The University of Southern California will be offering an Early Action notification plan during the upcoming admissions cycle. The deadline is November 1, and students will receive an admissions decision in mid- to late January.
There has been a lot of chatter about mental health on campuses lately. Both the University of Texas and Cal State Long Beach have announced strategic plans to expand and improve existing mental health services.
In the ongoing college admissions scandal, former Georgetown University tennis coach Gordon Ernst was sentenced to two and a half years in prison. Ernst accepted nearly $3.5 million in bribes to help wealthy families cheat the system. This is one of the longest sentences in the college admissions scandal.
The University of Denver recently opened the James C. Kennedy mountain campus and will host all first-year and transfer students for a three-day program to start their semester this fall. The campus will be open to students and faculty throughout the year, and the goal is for all students to “spend some time on the property before they graduate to promote mental health, personal reflection and bonding.” That sounds good to us!
