If you’re considering St. Mary’s University in Texas, you can sign up to receive text messages from the school’s admissions office. Students who reply to the university’s mass texts get individualized responses.
St. Mary’s says the texts have helped them to identify future students. Students who sign up for texts are more likely to apply and, if admitted, more likely to enroll.
Earlier this week, I posted an infographic about the current state of cheating among high school students.
I recently received the following reply from reader Haley R.:
Honestly, I think a lot of people in high school, particularly guys, exaggerate about how much they cheat. They just want to look tough. More than cheating, I think the problem is that a lot of people don’t want to others to think they care about school. If that weren’t an issue, it wouldn’t be a big deal to do your own homework or study hard for a test.
