British colleges see application jump

SING ALONG STARS

Faced with dim prospects in
an ever increasingly weak job
market, many British students
have made the decision to
attend college, the Chronicle
of Higher Education reported.
Applications to Universities
in Great Britain are up 8 per-
cent, with a huge influx of that
coming between December
and January.
Applications coming from
students older than 24 greatly
contributed to the spike in
applications, with a 12.6 per-
cent increase despite the fact
that financial aid for adults
has been decreased in recent
years.
NORTHERN ILLINOIS U.
UNVEILS MEMORIAL TO
FIVE STUDENTS KILLED
LAST YEAR
A year after five students

were shot and killed in Cole
Hall at Northern Illinois Uni-
versity, the school announced
plans to create a memorial gar-
den to honor the students, the
Chronicle of Higher Education
reported.
The garden, which will be
constructed east of the build-
ing, will feature five illumi-
nated red-granite panels, each
bearing the name of one of the
victims.
The final design for the gar-
den was chosen from an ini-
tial batch of 200 suggestions
reviewed by a university com-
mittee.
FORMER STUDENTS SUE
EAST STROUDSBURG U. OF
PENNSYLVANIA
One current student and
five former students sued
East Stroudsburg University

of Pennsylvania on Friday,
alleging the university did not
properly investigate a former
vice president who allegedly
made blatant sexual advancesy
toward male students, the
Chronicle of Higher Education
reported.
The suit seeks more than
$50,000 for damages, claiming
Isaac W. Sanders used schol-
arships to get close to young
African-American students
before he then made advances
on them.
"These were boys who were
preyed upon because of the
fact they were from single-
parent households, they were
looking for mentorship. That's
one of the things that hurts the
most," Albert R. Murray Jr., a
lawyer for the plaintiffs told
the Associated Press.
