Tulane University Is The No. 1 Party School In Princeton's 2018 Ranking

Cavan Sieczkowski, HuffPost 13 hours ago


It's that time of year again.
The Princeton Review's annual "Best Colleges" book is out for the 2017-18 school year. It surveyed almost 140,000 college students from campuses across the country to rank 20 colleges in 62 different categories. 
"We know applicants need far more than an academic rating or ranking to find the college that will be best for them," Robert Franek, Princeton Review's editor-in-chief and the book's lead author, said in a press release. "We created our 62 ranking lists to help narrow that search. They are based entirely on data we gather beyond academics that gives insight into what the school's enrolled students say about their professors, administrators, school services, campus culture, and student life. In the end, it's all about the fit." 
The "Top Party Schools" list is one of the most popular. This year, New Orleans' Tulane University takes the No. 1 spot. Tulane was No. 1 on Princeton Review's party list only once before: In 1992, when the very first list was published for the 1993 edition. 
"People are definitely partiers. If you're not going out at least twice a week you're in the minority," reads a student quote from the 2018 edition. "Intelligence is well respected. What do we do for fun? We party. But we don't just get drunk. We party with a purpose."
The Louisiana school has regularly made it to the top of party school lists over the years. 
"Every holiday is on a whole other level," then-freshman Oliver Duke told College Magazine in 2015. "Bourbon and Frenchman [Streets] are always wild and are very popular for Jazz Fest, Halloween and all the Mardi Gras festivals. Classes are a joke [during Mardi Gras] week and we even get a Mardi Gras break because the school knows what the students are doing."
Coming in at No. 2 and No. 3 this year are West Virginia University and Pennsylvania's Bucknell University, respectively. Last year's top party school, University of Wisconsin-Madison, ranks No. 5 this year. 
 

Princeton Review's Top 20 Party Schools Of 2018:

1. Tulane University

2. West Virginia University

3. Bucknell University

4. Syracuse University

5. University of Wisconsin-Madison

6. University of Delaware

7. University of Colorado-Boulder

8.  Colgate University

9. Lehigh University

10. University of Maine 

11. University of Iowa

12. University of California, Santa Barbara

13. University of Mississippi 

14. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

15. University of Vermont 

16. University of Rhode Island 

17. University of Florida 

18. Wake Forest University 

19. University of Kansas

20. University of Alabama

 
Rankings are formed based on 80-question surveys distributed to students on various elements of campus life. Respondents have five choices, according to The Princeton Review, ranging from "awful" to "excellent." Thus, final lists reflect opinions rather than empirical evidence. According to The Princeton Review, their party school list is compiled based on ratings and quotes from real students about Greek life, studying, alcohol and drugs. 
Other No. 1 rankings for this year include:
  • Most Accessible Professors — Colby College (Maine)
  • Best College Dorms— Scripps College (Calif.)
  • Best Campus Food — University of Massachusetts Amherst
  • Best Health Services — University of Wisconsin—Madison
  • Most Beautiful Campus — the University of San Diego (Calif.)
  • Best Athletic Facilities — Auburn University (Ala.)
  • Happiest Students — Vanderbilt University (Tenn.)
  • Most Politically Active Students — Columbia University (N.Y.)
  • LGBTQ-Friendly — Bryn Mawr College (Pa.)
  • Party Schools —Tulane University (La.)
  • Stone-Cold Sober Schools — Brigham Young University (Utah)
  • Students Pack the Stadiums — Syracuse University (N.Y.)
  • College City Gets High Marks — Tulane University (La.)
  • Their Students Love These Colleges — Virginia Tech

•    Consumer-centric technology ecosystems are making brands indispensable. Consumers can increasingly carry out a variety of activities, from online shopping to watching television, under the banner of one brand and across multiple devices. This convenience for consumers also allows the most powerful brands to minimise the risk of consumer switching.
•    New brands are increasingly born global, allowing them to grow rapidly. Technology allows businesses to provide their offerings globally from day one. This is fostering a new breed of entrepreneur, who is not restricted by the geographical or sector boundaries that have traditionally limited the speed and scale of growth.
•    Traditional non-tech brands are adopting technology to innovate and increase consumer appeal. Fastest riser Adidas has introduced 3D printing to produce its footwear, for example, while fast food brand Domino's Pizza offers customers a real-time tracker for their order.
•    The BrandZ Top 100 is getting younger. The average age of a brand is now 67 years, compared with 84 years in 2006, reflecting the entry of the newer technology brands and the emergence of brand China.
•    Brands that make it clear how they will make consumers' lives better, such as Huawei and Toyota, have grown three times more on average over the last 12 years (the top third grew +170% compared to the bottom third which was +57%).
•    Great communications puts a brand at an advantage. The top third in terms of strongest communications (including McDonald's and L'Orรฉal Paris) have grown 196% in value, compared with 47% for the bottom third. This is because they have successfully amplified the difference they have built.

[MTC Global] Soon, a demat account for your education certificates

MUMBAI: There will soon be no need for physical authentication of educational certificates during admissions. In a revolutionary move that will benefit students, recruiters and educational institutions, an arm of depository services provider National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) has started the process of dematerialising education certificates.

The CBSE has been the first to share the exam results of 27 lakh students with NSDL Database Management.

Most other educational institutions are expected to sign up by next year.

NSDL assigned the job of dematerialising education records to NSDL Database Management following an order of the ministry of human resource development to set up a National Academic Depository (NAD).

"We expect all universities and academic institutions of national importance, central universities and school boards to upload the data of examination performance," said NSDL managing director G V Nageswara Rao.

The benefits are two-fold for educational institutions that sign up. First, the task of maintaining a database of exam records over the years gets outsourced.

Second, during admissions, the academic institutions can plug into the NAD and verify the marks obtained by students in lower-level examinations.

This will eliminate the need for authenticating physical copies of certificates. Similarly, employers can directly access students' examination records, and do not have to worry about the authenticity of marksheets.


"For sophisticated users, like technology companies, we can provide access to our database so that they do not have to download records, but can automate the authentication process," said Rao.

Rao said that although the NSDL gets rid of paper certificates, academic institutions would continue to issue certificates for some time.

To sign up, each student will have to do the equivalent of a 'know your customer' authentication by obtaining an NSDL ID or providing their Aadhaar card. Once this is done, he/she will get an account in which his/her academic qualifications will be stored.

According to Rao, this has the potential to expedite the disbursement of education loans.

Election official 'tortured and murdered' before vote

Al Jazeera 8 hours ago
An official charged with overseeing Kenya's electronic voting system has been found dead just days before the August 8 presidential election, according to the commission's chairman. The body of Chris Msando, a top information technology manager at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), has been identified at the city morgue, Wafula Chebukati, IEBC chairperson, said on Monday. "There was no doubt he was tortured and murdered. The only question in our mind is who [killed him] and why he was killed a few days to elections," Chebukati told reporters. Msando was declared missing over the weekend. In an earlier statement, Chebukati said Msando was last seen on Friday night and ...

Southern Cameroons Struggle: Why Gov’t Dispatches Delegation to UN

Southern Cameroons Struggle: Why Gov't Dispatches Delegation to UN

In what looks like a move to thwart the diplomatic efforts by Southern Cameroonians, as they battle to restore their statehood, the government of Cameroon has dispatched a three man delegation to the United Nations.

 

The delegation would be in the USA barely days after officials of the Public Affairs Committee of the Southern Cameroons Ambazonia Consortium, United Front, SCACUF, marched to the UN office in New York to denounce rights violations and seek UN's intervention to prevent a possible genocide in the Southern Cameroons.

Re: [MTC Global] Indian Institutes Of Management Bill 2017: 'Want To Remove Government Interference At IIMs,' Says Minister

Apologies for the typos in previous response .

Why not?  If it does not start with institutions such as the IIMs it is never likely to happen  .  Excellent initiative. Should have happened long before. But better late than never. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

NEW DELHI:  HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar today received rare praise from the Opposition 
in the Lok Sabha for bringing a bill which seeks to usher in functional autonomy in the 
Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) by restricting the government role. The Indian 
Institutes of Management Bill, 2017, provides for giving statutory powers to these 
institutions in their running including appointment of directors, faculty members, and 
gives them powers to award degrees instead of post graduate diplomas. The bill also has 
provisions for appointment of members of the board of governors (BoG) in each of the 20 
IIMs through a transparent process, while limiting even the HRD Minister's role.

The bill also seeks to declare the IIMs as institutes of national importance and abolish 
the post of visitor.

Currently, the President is the 'visitor' of the IIMs.

Moving the bill for consideration and passage, Mr. Javadekar said the aim of the bill is 
to remove the government's interference in IIMs.

He said the proposed legislation will usher in a new era of freedom in the IIMs and these 
institutes will not require to come to the government for various permissions and 
clearances.

"It is a historical bill which will bring a new era in management education in the 
country," he said, noting that financial transaction will be subject to CAG evaluation as 
the institutes run on tax payers' money.

He said it was not an ideal situation to run the IIMs from Delhi, noting the move is 
aimed at allowing autonomy to institutes which have created an eco-system for excellence 
in higher education.

The government will have only one representative in each BoG so that the institutes can 
take decisions independently, the minister said.

Participating in the debate on the bill, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said it was a 
"remarkable moment when a minister surrenders (his) powers".

He said other ministers in the government should draw inspiration from Mr. Javadekar in 
doing so. 

At the same time, the former minister criticised the government for not enhancing 
financial assistance to IITs and IIMs, saying they are reeling under funds crunch.

He suggested the government should have some say in determining fee structure in the IIMs 
as higher fees may badly hit students from the poor families.

He also pitched for clarity in having reservation in recruitment of faculty staff from SC 
and ST community.

Tharoor also slammed the government for removing the name of Rajiv Gandhi from the name 
of the Shillong IIM, saying it is "petty" of the government to stoop to such level.

Trinamool Congress leader Sougata Roy also praised the government for bringing the bill, 
saying it will further improve the functioning of the IIMs.

He said the fees in the IIMs were very high and urged the government to see that this 
does not deter the deserving students from admission.

M B Rajesh (CPI-M) also raised the issue of high fees in IIMs, saying the autonomous 
status should not lead to money- making by these institutions.

He sought to know from the government why it had appointed directors on the Boards of 10 
IIMs on February 10, 2017, just a day after the IIM Bill was tabled in Parliament.

Nagendra Kumar Pradhan (BJD) said the IIMs charge fees between Rs. 9 lakh and Rs. 20 lakh 
and because of the limited number of seats these institutes have, students have to opt 
for private MBA institutes.

Pradhan sought to know from the government if it was aware of the fate of the students 
who pass out from the 5,500 private business schools and get paid a salary of as low as 
Rs.10,000 per month and are unable to repay the education loan.

Arvind Sawant (Shiv Sena) also appreciated Mr. Javadekar's move to grant the status of 
autonomous institution to the IIMs.

He sought the minister's attention towards private institutions demanding money from 
students at the time of admission.

B Ravindra Babu (TDP) too appreciated the HRD minister, saying the MPs in the House feel 
he is a "dynamic minister" and has been very liberal towards giving institutes of 
national importance to the bifurcated Andhra Pradesh.

BJP's Poonam Mahajan, praising the government, said effort must always be to ensure that 
the "wings of aspirations of the youth are not cut".

"Aspirations of the youth are country's hope. If the youth aspire, then only can we hope 
for a better tomorrow. It is a freedom movement for the IIMs. It is about freedom to 
think and pursue the goals by the youths," she said. 

K Hari Babu (BJP) too praised Mr. Javadekar, saying everyone wants "power to be in their 
pocket" but the HRD minister has given up the position of being the chairperson on IIM 
Boards​.

Nagendra Kumar Pradhan (BJD) said the IIMs charge fees between Rs. 9 lakh and Rs. 20 lakh
and because of the limited number of seats these institutes have, students have to opt
for private MBA institutes.

Pradhan sought to know from the government if it was aware of the fate of the students
who pass out from the 5,500 private business schools and get paid a salary of as low as
Rs.10,000 per month and are unable to repay the education loan.

Arvind Sawant (Shiv Sena) also appreciated Mr. Javadekar's move to grant the status of
autonomous institution to the IIMs.

He sought the minister's attention towards private institutions demanding money from
students at the time of admission.

B Ravindra Babu (TDP) too appreciated the HRD minister, saying the MPs in the House feel
he is a "dynamic minister" and has been very liberal towards giving institutes of
national importance to the bifurcated Andhra Pradesh.

BJP's Poonam Mahajan, praising the government, said effort must always be to ensure that
the "wings of aspirations of the youth are not cut".

"Aspirations of the youth are country's hope. If the youth aspire, then only can we hope
for a better tomorrow. It is a freedom movement for the IIMs. It is about freedom to
think and pursue the goals by the youths," she said.

K Hari Babu (BJP) too praised Mr. Javadekar, saying everyone wants "power to be in their
pocket" but the HRD minister has given up the position of being the chairperson on IIM
Boards​.

Re: Private Schools Proprietors NWR Declare Schools Resumption with Strings Attached

Oh Please.
Do any of you believe this THING?
How can an ASSOCIATION of this magnitude be represented by a single individual?
I am highly suspicious.  I smell a dead rat!
