College News Roundup: April 6–14

The blog was abandoned for more than a week, but I was still reading the news.


So I've been gone for more than a week, unable to blog because of sheer exhaustion. Meanwhile, college news kept being made. A quick summary:

The University of Miami offered refuge to displaced students from the University of L'Aquila in Italy after its campus was "practically destroyed" by last week's 6.3 magnitude earthquake, reports the Chronicle of Higher Education .

Ohio State has restored postings on its Facebook page after an initial ban prompted by a post criticizing President E. Gordon Gee's work on the board of an energy company, the Inside Higher Ed writes.

Because of a typo on the front page, 18,500 copies of Brigham Young University's student newspaper were removed and reprinted. Under a photo of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' General Conference, the caption read "Quorum of Twelve Apostates" instead of "Apostles," reports the Chronicle of Higher Education . The Daily Universe's editorial manager describes it as "the worst possible mistake" it could have made.
