University Of Alaska Readies For Budget Slash: 'We May Likely Never Recover'

The University of Alaska System is bracing for a 41% cut to its budget, after Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed a $130 million line item in the state's budget.

The announcement came last Friday, three days before the fiscal year began on July 1. Dunleavy vetoed roughly $400 million items in the budget, with education receiving the largest cut.

The university system will lose $130 million from the veto — on top of an additional $5 million previously agreed upon by legislators. The governor's 182 line-item cuts also included Medicaid, senior benefit payments and homelessness services.

Saint Paul’s College property sold (Dec 2017)

The former Saint Paul’s College might one day welcome students again to its campus in Brunswick County — but possibly under a different name.

Xinhua Education Investment Corp., a Chinese-backed group, purchased the remaining property of the historically black college on Nov. 27, according to county court records.

The group secured about 130 acres and about 30 campus buildings in Lawrenceville, the county seat, the records show.

“Challenge by choice” was the motto of Saint Paul’s College, which closed in 2013 because of financial problems and declining student enrollment.

Now the citizens of Lawrenceville are living up to that motto — by taking up the challenge of collecting and preserving artifacts documenting the 125-year history of the historically black college.

Lawrenceville residents and other supporters of Saint Paul’s College have opened a museum to showcase documents and memorabilia, including an original copy of “Adventure in Faith,” an autobiography written by the Rev. James Solomon Russell, who was born enslaved, became an Episcopal priest and founded the school in 1888.

How To Survive College When You're Paying Your Own Way

Then, during Schandevel's junior year, the university's student government put out a campus affordability guide, written with the average Michigan student in mind — but it's worth noting that the average student at the school has a family income of about $150,000 per year.

The advice didn't go over well with low-income students on campus.

"A lot of the advice was like, fire your maid, or sell your car to save money," says Schandevel. "I was frustrated by this guide, and I was seeing others frustrated by it."

She decided to make her own affordability guide, and she fired up a Google doc and titled it, "Being Not-Rich at UM: A Guide." She added her own hacks — the things that helped her survive and budget. But there was so much she didn't know, so she left the sharing settings open for other students to jump in and edit the online document.

The science divide: Why do Latino and black students leave STEM majors at higher rates?

Lab classes have always left Shason Briscoe wracked with anxiety.

The 21-year-old senior at the University of California at Davis wasn’t concerned about the academic rigor or long hours spent in the classroom — it was the uneasiness he felt when his peers and instructors watched him. Briscoe, who is African American, studies computer engineering at UC Davis, where black students constitute fewer than 3 percent of students in the program. Often, he is the only black student in his classes.

Could the SWAC and MEAC have a double header in Georgia or Alabama at the end of the baseball season?

Maybe between the two 2nd place teams if the champs didn't want to play.

I see that Florida A&M and Southern scheduled a game.

Just a thought
