As College Fees Climb, Aid Does Too

As their state financing dwindled, four-year public universities increased their published tuition and fees almost 8 percent this year, to an average of $7,605, according to the College Board’s annual reports. When room and board are included, the average in-state student at a public university now pays $16,140 a year.  At private nonprofit colleges and universities, tuition rose 4.5 percent to an average of $27,293, or $36,993 with room and board.  The good news in the 2010 “Trends in College Pricing” and “Trends in Student Aid” reports is that fast-rising tuition costs have been accompanied by a huge increase in financial aid, which helped keep down the actual amount students and families pay.

COLUMBIA — Former first lady Jenny Sanford was paid $15,000 for a speech at the University of South Carolina this week.

West Distinguished Professor of Government, said the 2010 election is notable for three reasons: the use of money not tied to a candidate or party; the tea party phenomenon; and both parties framing the races as referenda on Obama's presidency.

Haley, Sheheen joust on jobs, college costs in final debate

Haley said the state should provide a budget for colleges and universities with no strings attached, and allow those schools to decide the best use. If schools hit targets in classroom funding, graduation rates, the percentage of in-state students and economic development, those schools would receive more money.  “The biggest thing we can do is deregulate them,” Haley said. “Each college needs to have their own business plan.”  But Sheheen said higher education needs more money, and he would make it a priority once state revenues recover from the Great Recession.

USC’s Arnold School receives grants totaling $21 million

The University of South Carolina’s Arnold School of Public Health has received nearly $21 million in grants, said Tom Chandler, dean of the Arnold School, during the school’s 35th anniversary. “Each award is a testament to the impact that the Arnold School has on the health of South Carolinians and our influence on human health and environmental health in our state and nation,” he said.  “These grants target many of the most pressing health problems facing our society today, including an impending shortage of public-health professionals that will be addressed with this significant grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration to establish the S.C. Public Health Training Center.”

Citadel wastes solid defensive effort

If you had spotted Citadel coach Kevin Higgins these numbers - 286 total yards and two turnovers for Georgia Southern - he probably would have taken them in a second.  Those figures marked the Eagles' second fewest yards in a game this season, and matched their season high for turnovers.  "I thought our defense really played well today," Higgins said. "They had their backs against the wall and stepped up a number of times to make plays."

Eagles go to ground in win over Citadel

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Among the many things Georgia Southern coach Jeff Monken learned from Paul Johnson: Some times the best way to win a game is not to lose it.  The Eagles did their best not to mirror the triple option attack of The Citadel on Saturday and came away with a 20-0 victory at Johnson Hagood Stadium.  GSU (4-3, 2-2 Southern Conference) took advantage of nine Bulldog turnovers while overcoming the loss of starting quarterback Jaybo Shaw to a right hip injury on the Eagles' second offensive play.

After about six or seven turnovers, Citadel quarterback Matt Thompson lost count.  "It was like, 'Did that really happen?'

But it happened, and we have to bounce back from it."

1_Saturday Diary: A newring from my Pittsburgh family

In the spring of 2007, as I was standing in line for an ice cream cone at Page Dairy Mart on East Carson Street, a gentleman standing in line behind me noticed my college ring.  "Excuse me," he asked. "Is that a Citadel ring?"  Surprised, I turned, shook his hand and said, "Tim Grant. Class of 1989."  He replied, "Walter Bunt. Class of 1969."

Minutes after The Citadel’s 13-6 loss at Georgia Southern last year, Bulldogs coach Kevin Higgins promised a “hard look” at his program, and said, “We’re going to look philosophically at what we’re doing, particularly on offense.’  He didn’t say it at the time, but Higgins had decided to go to the triple option attack, similar to the wishbone offense that had carried Citadel teams to their glory days in the early 1990s.

The threat is complex and involves more than just connecting the dots.  "Information comes at us like a cloud. It's constant and it's complicated," she said.  Napolitano spoke Thursday to the Corps of Cadets at The Citadel in McAlister Field House for the school's Greater Issues Series.  Napolitano's visit came amid controversy over the federally mandated REAL ID program, to which South Carolina and about a dozen other states are opposed. The state Department of Motor Vehicles used part of a $2.1 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security to issue new driver's licenses that are more difficult to counterfeit and more tamper-proof, but they don't meet the federal REAL ID standards. The state has until May 10 to comply.

Over the last decade South Carolina's in-state tuition has risen 172 percent -- five times higher than personal income growth and more than six times higher than inflation. This means our in-state tuition now actually ranks first among Southeastern states and sixth nationally.

Poll: Don’t link tuition, university construction

Nearly seven of 10 respondents to this week’s GSA Daily survey said the state should not prohibit university construction projects because of tuition increases.  The State Budget and Control Board in September approved a moratorium on construction at universities that it believes have raised tuition too high. The board set a limit on 7% for in-state tuition increases at public four-year universities and 6.3% at two-year colleges. Major state construction projects need board approval to proceed.  Universities that are not in compliance could apply to get an exemption for their projects, if they pledge that their tuition for next year be low enough to comply. There also is an exception for projects that are overwhelmingly funded with private donations.

Blocking not optional for Bulldogs receivers

Most wide receivers have standard methods of measuring football performance -- catches, yards, touchdowns, number of reality TV shows.  The Citadel's move to the run-heavy double-slot option offense this season has required Bulldog receivers to come up with a new statistic -- "cuts."  The cuts category measures the number of cut-blocks thrown by wideouts and slotbacks, a vital part of the option offense. For Citadel receivers, "cuts" is the new catches.

College education too expensive (letter to the editor)

Over the past seven years of my public school education, the importance of a good college education has been emphasized. Three years ago, I initiated investigations into colleges. I have learned two vital pieces of information. The first is that college is way too expensive, insanely high in price. If I do not want to be strapped with college debt until I am middle-aged, I need to choose an in-state school that does not have sky-high prices.

Less than one-quarter of students statewide earned the letter grades "A" to "C" on the history and the Constitution test. And less than half who took the physical science exam scored in the "A" to "C" range.

...But enough is enough. These recent tuition increases -- notably the College of Charleston's nearly 15 percent hike -- have prompted the Legislature to step in and point out a dirty little secret: colleges have spent nearly $1 billion on new construction in the past four years. And some of them have paid for it by raising tuition far more than they needed to simply make up for the state cuts.  So congratulations, higher education. You have managed to cede the moral high ground to the South Carolina state Legislature.
