University of Illinois Chan-
cellor Richard Herman resigned
last Wednesday after facing
scrutiny for his involvement in
an admissions scandal, accord-
ing to The New York Times.
A governor-appointed inde-
pendent commission found
that the university's admissions
office had been giving prefer-
ential treatment to applicants
with powerful connections,
according to the article.
The existence of a so-called
"clout list" was first uncovered
by the Chicago Tribune in May.
The university's president,
B. Joseph White, resigned last
month.
According to the Times, the
report "cited several instances
in which Mr. Herman lobbied
successfully on behalf of politi-
cians to have certain students
admitted, including honoring a
request by Rod R. Blagojevich,
the indicted former governor."

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS
STUDENTS FAST TO END
HUNGER
Last Thursday, 1,100 stu-
dents at the University of
Texas at Austin participated in
a Fast-A-Thon to raise hunger
awareness for the Austin com-
munity, according to The Daily
Texan.
Members of the univer-
sity's Muslim Students Asso-
ciation, which organized the
event, hoped to help the com-
munity learn about Muslim
culture as well, The Daily
Texan reported.
The event coincided with
Ramadan, an Islamic holiday
during which observers are
forbidden from eating after
sunrise and before sunset. To
raise money and fight hunger, a
dollar was donated to the Capi-
tal Area Food Bank of Texas
for each person who pledged to

fast, The Daily Texan reported.
ALLEGED GEORGETOWN
SHOOTER RELEASED
AFTER HEARING
Georgetown University's stu-
dentnewspaper, The Hoya, reports
that police released a Georgetown
freshman Tuesday sftec being
charged with possession of a
weapon without alicense.
The student, Alex Thiele,
allegedly stole a .40-caliber
weapon from a U.S. Tack Police
officer and fired it in a men's
bathroom during a basketball
pep rally, damaging a toilet
from the shot, according to
The Hoya.
When found in his dorm
room, no gun was found in his
possession. Georgetown stu-
dents received e-mail alerts on
Saturday regarding the inci-
dent, the article said.
