He also coached at Tampa, Colorado State, Iowa State and of Northern Iowa. His career record was 154-90-2. He earlier coached high school football in Ohio.

    Here we go again. Another day, another ridiculous free-speech controversy. This time it involves a far-left professor at Fresno State University, Randa Jarrar. In the hours after Barbara Bush’s death, Jarrar tweeted that Bush was a “generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” adding “F*** outta here with your nice words.” Then, when the inevitable backlash built, she doubled down, taunting her critics with her tenured status, calling Bush a “witch,” and pranking readers by sharing Arizona State University’s crisis hotline. All-in-all, it was a reprehensible display, a grotesque example of the...

    If you don’t think Socialism exists in the U.S., it’s to wake up. College campuses are havens for Socialist activity, and one California college — go figure — is actively supporting it. California-based Scripps College will be hosting a Socialist love-fest with actual members of Venezuela’s Socialist government. They will talk about the joys of starving people and making people who disagree with the government disappear. Okay, they’re not going to say it like that, but you get the idea. The speakers — as well as the college — will paint Socialism with a democracy paintbrush and call it art....

She had just finished her first semester of college, and up until then, described herself as your typical “all-American girl.”She got good grades, was a member of a sorority, and ran on the track team.When she saw that pregnancy test, “My life is over,” she thought.“I was like, it doesn’t even matter. Nothing matters anymore,” Kelly told The Daily Signal.Kelly, unlike most girls her age, was familiar with the implications of an unplanned pregnancy. In high school, she volunteered at HOPE in Northern Virginia, a nonprofit that creates gift...

She wrote to the professor, explaining to him that negro was an offensive and outdated term, but he failed to adjust his vocabulary. "I didn't pay attention in class after that," the student, Maria Martinez, told The Columbia Daily Spectator.

    Sarah Barrett didn't need a grand study to tell her a bunch of students on Kansas State University's campus had been going without food. As an assistant dean of students, she had heard enough of them talk about choosing books or housing costs over food to know that the university needed to do something to help its hungry students. K-State students are not alone. The problem of college students' inability to afford food is common on campuses across the country. According to a first-of-its-kind survey of two- and four-year private and public schools, 36 percent of students on college campuses...

    The Federalist ^ | 4-2-18 | Patricia Daugherty
    The extremely liberal environment on many college campuses is often attributed to the influence of aging hippie professors intent on indoctrination rather than education. But perhaps even more influential is the army of campus administrators who work with college students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. My recent experience at a national conference of such professionals revealed that indoctrination isn’t confined to the classroom. Before retiring in 2015, I did “student affairs” work on university campuses for almost 40 years. I always looked forward to attending the ACPA (American College Personnel Association: College Student Educators International) conference to...

    Caleb Torres lost seven pounds his freshman year of college — and not because he didn’t like the food in the dining hall. A first-generation college student, barely covering tuition, Torres ran out of grocery money halfway through the year and began skipping meals as a result. He’d stretch a can of SpaghettiOs over an entire day. Or he’d scout George Washington University campus for events that promised free lunch or snacks. Torres told no one what he was going through, least of all his single mom. "She had enough things to worry about," he said... Now a senior and...

    At a recent forum, Marquette University faculty members declared that the school’s seal is a “microaggression” because it depicts a white explorer being guided by a Native American. The Marquette University Intercultural Center, which is funded through a combination of tuition and student activity fees, hosted the March 23 event, titled "Men to Men: Responding to Microaggressions and Why They Matter."
