Legislative Support for Higher Education

Last spring, the legislature passed a law that restricts public college students in Texas to drop only a maximum of six classes as an undergraduate. The idea was that this will help students graduate faster.

I see it as the perfect example of what passes for legislative support for higher education in Texas

  1. So, you’re phasing out this site for the other one?

    By the way, everybody I’ve known from Gustavus Adolphus loved it. That was a couple of decades ago, though.

  2. Yes, I’m going to switch over to the other site. But I’ll dual post for a while.

    That’s the problem with just looking at schools through what’s available on the web. I really hope that people who might be interested in the school realize that I’m giving my opinion based on limited information and specific preferences. There are so many possibilities out there that you’ve got to start cutting the list down somehow. If Gustavus Adolphus was in Texas, it would on the list of potential colleges for my son meaning that we would at least go and visit. It’s graduation rate alone probably puts it in the top third of schools in Texas. But it didn’t make a big enough positive impression on me to include it in our list of potential colleges out of state.
