  • Pine Manor College: A Great Women’s College You Might Not Know

    Barry Lenson

    If you’re sold on the idea of going to a women’s college, you’ve probably been looking at a small number of schools that are well known for excellence in women’s education. In the Northeast, there are Barnard, Mount Holyoke, Smith, Wellesley, and a few more. Down South, there are Agnes Scott, Hollins, Mary Baldwin, and Sweet Briar. We urge you to take a close look at Pine Manor College too. It’s a well-respected women’s college located outside of Boston in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Why Pine Manor?  For years, women have sought out women’s colleges for some very specific reasons. Some of those colleges, like Wellesley, have done a stellar job of preparing women for leadership in science and politics. Others, like Agnes Scott, ...

  • City College of San Francisco in Crisis

    Barry Lenson

    “I can guarantee you that if this institution cannot fix its problems, it will lose its accreditation.” - Brice Harris, chancellor of the California Community Colleges system, quoted in The Chronicle. In a blog post last January, we noted that The City College of San Francisco, the largest community college in California, had shifted into full crisis mode. The college had to fix its finances by March 15, 2013, or it risked losing its accreditation. Meanwhile, students were in limbo about what would happen to their school, which is one of the biggest community colleges in America. So, what has happened since then? “City College of San Francisco has a year to prove it can govern itself,” an article by Lois Kazakoff in The San ...

  • Monsters University: Why Mike and Sully Are the Students of the Future

    Barry Lenson

    I went to see “Monsters University” yesterday. What a great summer flick. But even though the plot is just as fluffy around the edges as Sully’s computer-generated fur, it does contain some truths about what it means to be a student today. Here’s what I mean . . . Mike and Sully don’t reach their dreams on the first try. Yup, they get into Monsters University and try to earn their dream degrees as Scaring majors.  But they get thrown out of the program, and even out of the university. Like lots of students today, they have to become adult learners outside of the university. (Actually, they’re adult monster learners, but let’s not split hairs.) A traditional university doesn’t serve them well. Monsters Universit ...
