INDIANAPOLIS — A Senate committee heard testimony on a bill Wednesday that will allow the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to monitor the number of credit hours for new and existing college degree programs.
The bill would limit the number of credits a school can require to 60 for an associate degree and 120 for a bachelor’s degree.
Rep. Rhonda Rhoads, R-Corydon, and Sen. Jean Leising, R-Oldenburg, sponsor the bill, which is part of Gov. Mitch Daniels’ agenda to tamp down college costs.

The Library of Congress has chosen a documentary by a former Occidental College professor as one of 25 American films to permanently preserve in its National Film Registry as cultural, artistic and historical treasures.
“Fake Fruit Factory,” a 1986 documentary by late Oxy professor of film emerita Chick Strand about the lives of young female Mexican factory workers, was selected by Librarian of Congress James H. Billington. The documentary exemplifies Strand’s experimental style that deftly blends documentary, avant-garde and ethnographic techniques. Using a moving camera at close range to create vivid images that verge on abstraction, Strand takes an expressive look at the everyday lives of the female workers, who create ornamental papier mache fruits and vegetables.

Notice how many college admissions counseling companies have the name Ivy in them. You know why? Because some people think that if they have Ivy in the name of their business it implies that they have some kind of inside track to admissions to the Ivy League or other selective colleges.
You know the truth, dont you. There is no inside track to admissions to the Ivy League colleges or any other college. Yes, there are things that you can do to make yourself a more competitive candidate for a highly selective college. But having a counselor that works for an Ivy admissions company does not give you an added advantage.
Dont misunderstand me.
