NCAA rules complicate Clemson cornerback's bid to help brother
... Nearly two weeks ago, The Post and Courier of Charleston, S.C., wrote a touching story about McElrathbey, who received temporary custody of his brother from his mother. She has long struggled with a drug addiction.

After the story was published, the newspaper and school received numerous offers of assistance from the community — not just Clemson fans, but South Carolina and The Citadel supporters as well. ...

S.C. SAT scores decline

After a decade of progress, South Carolina's scores on the SAT college admissions exam fell this year, mirroring a national trend that educators blamed on a new, longer and more rigorous version of the test.

Most people don't seriously question whether CSOL will be accredited at the end of this year or early in 2007.  Those of us who entered CSOL as students when the school opened its doors in 2004 knew we were taking a chance but most of us never considered it to be a significant risk.  ...

It has become a higher education cliché: the late-night phone call in which the college president learns of a student death or other tragedy. The call sets in motion a process in which the president and other administrators inform and calm the campus, help students and staff grieve, and help employees and others look to the future. But who answers the phone when the call is about the death of the president? Who takes charge of what happens next on the campus? And how is a campus changed when its leader, its administrative and often emotional core, is suddenly gone? ...
