CAMPUS NOTES: Headline News From Colleges & Universities Around The Country

MATTE RELEASE--(Collegiate Presswire - January 11, 2007) - Following is a summary of news headlines from colleges and universities around the country:

More Women's Colleges Admit Men

In a surprising trend, a number of all-female colleges have begun to admit men. In mid-September, the board of Randolph-Macon Woman's College voted to become a co-ed institution. This decision comes less than a year after Regis College, Rutgers University's Douglass College and Wells College have all made similar choices to abandon their single-sex education roots. Proponents of these moves point to a survey of SAT students last year from The College Board that shows only 3.4 percent of students would apply to a women's college.

Number of College Degrees Increasing for Women

New data gathered by two university professors from the U.S. Department of Education statistics has shown that nearly 60 percent of bachelor's degrees in the U.S. are now earned by women. This data, which represents a substantial rise over the past three decades for women, is being carefully studied as an indicator of the value of a college education for both women and men in today's society.

HOT TOPIC: Stress Management

Keeping your cool in college is a must. Whether it's crunch-time before finals or a hot date, women are feeling the pressure of stress. In order to remain calm and collected in these moments, simple exercises such as taking deep breaths, drinking plenty of water and exercising can lower stress levels. In addition to the usual stress-management techniques, being organized and prepared can make a huge difference. Make sure you are ready for any situation by carrying mascara, shiny lip gloss and an anti-perspirant/deodorant like Suave, which provides effective odor and wetness protection and best of all, glides on clear. These few small items will ensure you're looking great and feeling confident to tackle those stressful moments! For more information, you can log on to

Study Finds MBAs Cheat More

A new study by the Academy of Management Learning and Education has found that more than half of graduate business students cheat. Despite honor codes being in place, many students are driven to cheat in order to succeed in the highly competitive, pressure-filled environment of today's MBA programs.

Early Decision May be a Thing of the Past

Harvard, Princeton and the University of Virginia are trying to simplify the admissions process and make it less stressful for seniors. Starting next Fall, these schools will drop their November Early Decision process in favor of the traditional Regular Decision deadline of January to help level the playing field for applicants.
