The California Aggie
University of California-Davis
According to a handful of students who rated him, University of California Davis computer science professor Dean Sniegowski is a helpful professor who teaches a challenging class. Furthermore, the man is evidently "sexy."
Welcome to www.ratemyprofessor.com, a nationwide network where students rate their professors on a scale ranging from one to five in three categories: clarity, helpfulness and ease. Students can also leave comments and note whether the professor is "sexy."
Columbia Daily Spectator
Despite additional security measures implemented more than a week ago, a computer hacker struck Columbia University's Internet server again Monday.
For the second time in eight days, the university's homepage was replaced with a pornographic Web site, though the message on the defaced homepage was different in the two incidents.
The hacked version of the page remained online for about 20 minutes before Academic Information Systems staff removed it at around 5:35 p.m.
Duke apps soar
Undergraduate applications for Duke University's class of 2007 broke almost every record on the books this year as 16,656 high school seniors applied for admittance, eclipsing last year's record by more than 750.
Overall, the applicants set benchmarks in almost every category, including international applications, SAT scores, financial aid requests, individual minority applications and a host of others.
The record-breaking number comes during a year in which early decision numbers declined about 10 percent.
