Maine will help you pay off your student loans if you move there

"When you move to Maine, the money you spend toward paying your student loan debt each year is subtracted from your state income taxes.
For instance, if you pay $1,800 toward your loan and owe the state $2,000 in taxes, you'll only end up paying Maine $200."

Maine leads the charts with the oldest population in the nation. So, state lawmakers decided they needed a way to start bringing in young minds to the workforce.

These disciplines can help you find the sweet spot between your passions and job security.

Academics question system for measuring academic performance, flagging potential problems

"And while most faculty members were willing to engage with the new system, not everyone was on board, said Kilpatrick. Telling faculty members when and how to report on student progress “made some people feel like they were teaching high school,” he said."

Early-alert systems designed to catch struggling students are ubiquitous in higher ed, but not every institution is seeing desired results.

What We Should Have Learned in School But Never Did

We have to deal with highs and lows, not tie our self-worth to external events and circumstances, and in the midst of that somehow show up in the world as a fully functional, not completely screwed up human being.

How Much Can a University Make of a March Madness Cinderella Story?

"There’s evidence that it can. In 2006, George Mason University, an unheralded 11-seed, became a tournament darling with a shocking Final Four run. In March 2008, The Chronicle’s Brad Wolverton reported that the university had seen a 22-percent rise in freshman applications — with a 40-percent jump among out-of-staters — and a 350-percent rise in admissions inquiries."

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County made basketball history — and earned a chance to talk itself up to the nation. At least in the short term, it could see broader benefits.

Analysis | If Americans really cared about students’ mental health, these school ratios would be very different

And this from the end of the article:
"There is something else missing in the United States that affects the mental health of students, as explained in this Washington Post story about mass shootings at U.S. schools compared with other countries:

There’s also another crucial difference with the United States: extensive, mandatory health insurance, which allows schools to have direct and immediate access to psychologists and intervention teams."

A look at how schools are staffed with health professionals. It's ugly.

"The report doesn't contest that those who majored in engineering or natural sciences earn more, on average, than do humanities graduates do. But it shows humanities grads to be gainfully employed and holding positions of authority, and finds that only a slightly smaller share of them than of their better-paid counterparts think they have enough money."

New data suggest that STEM majors are not the only route to success.
