Once you start, you can't stop. My university's department is now up to AT LEAST two webinars a week. Ridiculous. The average cost is about $275 for a 1.5 hours of boredom and people doodling on their notebooks. Great use of private funds or public support.
In national news:
The University of Wisconsin has adopted an admissions policy that takes race and ethnicity into account, and Republican lawmakers have vowed to fight it.
