Revolting is the best word for the state of “higher” education today:
Fundraisers at Dartmouth and Cornell singled out students by name for failing to donate money to the universities, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports.
With lists supplied by college administrators, student volunteers at Dartmouth College and Cornell University circulated the names of students who had not donated to senior-gift drives. The programs relied on students to single out their peers to meet high participation goals.
Not everyone participated happily. The single student from Dartmouth’s 1,123-student Class of 2010 who did not contribute this year was criticized in a column in the college newspaper and on a popular blog, which posted her name and photograph.
