Quick. Name the student body president from your college years. Don't worry. Most college graduates — not just those who attended only events with free beer — can't do it. But that might not be the case for students at the College of Charleston this year.

College application frenzy to ease

High school seniors across America are anxiously awaiting the verdicts from the colleges of their choice later this month. Though it may not be of much solace to them, in just a few years the admissions frenzy is likely to ease. It’s simply a matter of demographics. Projections show that by next year or the year after, the annual number of high school graduates in the United States will peak at about 2.9 million after a 15-year climb. The number is then expected to decline until about 2015. Most universities expect this to translate into fewer applications and less selectivity, with most students likely finding it easier to get into college. ...
