Which College Town is Right for You?

There are already plenty of questions to consider when deciding where to go to college. Which school is the best for your program? How much can you afford to spend? How far from or close to home do you want to be?

College Football Week #2 Preview

Ohio StateWith the opening week of the college football season behind us, and the BCS in danger of being busted, it’s once again time to take a look at the three biggest games to watch this week.

Note: Since the USA Today coaches poll factors into the BCS, all team rankings will be based on that.

No. 14 Penn State at No. 1 Alabama. The Tide will likely be without injured Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram in the backfield, but it’s not likely to matter.

Miami University’s Delta Delta Delta Chapter Suspended

It was announced that the Delta Beta chapter of the Delta Delta Delta women’s fraternity will be closing its doors at Miami University in Ohio, with no opportunity to return until 2011. According to a story published on the fraternity’s national site, reports of hazing were made in early February and the organization worked closely with university officials to conduct a thorough investigation. They soon concluded that the hazing incident was against both Miami Student Code of Conduct and Tri Delta policy.tri delta logo

“We are deeply disappointed in the choices made by several members of our chapter at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio last month,” said Jackye Clark, President of Delta Delta Delta Fraternity. “This decision is made with a heavy heart, as our chapter at Miami University has enjoyed an uninterrupted 98-year span and positive track record with its host institution until now.”

Those members violating Tri Delta conduct policy face permanent removal from the organization, and those in good-standing may opt to become an unaffiliated collegiate member.
