1. Tuition increase for in-state cadets to be lower than originally projected

In-state cadets will be paying less for their 2019-2020 tuition at The Citadel than originally projected. The Citadel Board of Visitors (BOV) finalized tuition rates for the upcoming academic year at their meeting on June 15. The decision included a tuition increase of 0.8% for in-state cadets, rather than the projected 2.5% increase announced last November. The Higher Education Price Index (HEPI), an inflation index designed to track cost drivers in higher education, projects a 2.6% increase nationally for 2019-2020. The Citadel is one of the only two remaining 24/7 military institutions for undergraduates, aside from the federal academies. As such, when comparing college tuition rates it is important to note that The Citadel’s fee structure is different because the costs of room and board and multiple sets of military uniforms comprise the overall “all-in” rate. This is because members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets ─ the undergraduate population ─ must live in the barracks, eat all meals in the mess hall, and wear uniforms while on campus. Laundry, dry cleaning and books are also included in the all-in rate, with those costs calculated as part of each cadet’s Quartermaster Account. The all-in rate does not include other items such as lab fees that vary according to the academic major or schedule of each cadet or student.

2. Cadet internship, study abroad teaches the important role of health care
In an internship at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) that took place during the fall and spring semesters, Cadet Charlie Coste, a rising senior, learned how important his role will be as a physician. Coste spent the entire academic year volunteering at the MUSC Children’s Hospital, working with and helping to care for sick children. One of the most difficult experiences for him was when he learned that one of the children he had gotten to know was dying, holding on with only the help of life-support. As he made his usual rounds, Coste went to check on the boy, and from outside the door, he heard his name being called. As he entered, the child asked Coste to hold him. “I remember sitting there holding him, and he was starting to be in pain and began moving around. I remember thinking that I could be the last person that he ever has contact with—the last person to have a chance to put a smile on his face. So I then got this inclination to start softly singing some church hymns and say a silent prayer for him. When I did this, he started to calm down and reached out and squeezed my hand. I looked down to see a big smile on his face, and that is a sight I will remember for the rest of my life,” said Coste.

4. ‘Kind, Fiercely Competitive’ Southern Regional Class of 2019 Begins Its Next Journey
Prior to lining up for the march from the high school’s 11/12 gymnasium to the field, the 500 graduates of the Class of 2019 mingled about, taking photos of each other in groups, snapping selfies with teachers and administrators, and, generally, simply absorbing the joy of their final minutes together. Chris Ambrosio, who was the first to arrive to the school and parked his Ford F150 at the front of the line to leave once the ceremony was complete, credited Technical Sgt. Aubrey Vasquez with teaching him the “principles of being a leader, taking care of others and who I am as a person.” “I’m ready to get out of here and go to college,” said the ROTC commander-in-charge, who is headed for The Citadel in South Carolina, where he plans to study intelligence as he works toward the U.S. Marine Corps. “Here at Southern, I’ve learned how to push myself more than what I think I can do. I’m going to miss my friends and the daily connections I’ve had with the people here.”

4. Just the start: Graduates from Paterson's IB program earn $2M in college scholarships

The first 40 graduates from Paterson’s International Baccalaureate (IB) program have received more than $2 million worth of college scholarships and admissions to such prestigious colleges as Columbia, Penn, Rochester Institute of Technology, and The Citadel, city education officials announced. The IB program, in which students learn Mandarin and take such advanced courses as “The Theory of Knowledge,” was launched in an effort to provide Paterson’s brightest pupils with a rigorous academic experience and to try to keep them from transferring to high schools outside the district. The teachers and other staff had to go through extensive training to be part of the program.

1. Replacing Plastic: Can Bacteria Help Us Break The Habit?

If civilizations are remembered for what they leave behind, our time might be labeled the Plastic Age. Plastic can endure for centuries. It's everywhere, even in our clothes, from polyester leisure suits to fleece jackets. A Silicon Valley startup is trying to get the plastic out of clothing and put something else in: biopolymers. A polymer is a long-chain molecule made of lots of identical units. Polymers are durable and often elastic. Plastic is a polymer made from petroleum products. But biopolymers occur often in nature — cellulose in wood or silk from silkworms — and unlike plastic, they can be broken down into natural materials. To degrade, biopolymers need warm temperatures and the right bacteria around to chew them up, and the process takes weeks or months of constant exposure. Morse acknowledges that if conditions aren't right, though — say in a dry Arizona desert or at the bottom of the ocean — it will take longer. That's one of the drawbacks of biopolymers so far; some haven't lived up to their promise to biodegrade quickly. Biology professor John Weinstein at The Citadel in South Carolina put corn-based polymer bags in a wetland and found they degraded even more slowly than regular plastic bags. "You've created a new material," he says of the bioplastic, "but how does it break down? I was surprised."

5. The Motivation of a Squad - 3rd Regiment of Advanced Camp completes the Obstacle Course
The Delta Co., 3rd Regiment Cadets went through the Confidence Course yesterday, June 8, with the motivation of their squad encouraging them the whole way. The Course: The Confidence Course is made up of nine different obstacles meant to challenge the Cadets’ strength, both physical and mental. Each obstacle presents a new problem to overcome, and some are harder than others. Whether it’s climbing a rope to scoot across wooden planks or swinging yourself up onto a log, all encompass their own difficulties. The nine obstacles are The Tough One (known as being the most difficult), the Inclining Wall, the Low Belly Over, the Confidence Climb, the Six Vault, the Swing-Stop-and-Jump, the Low Wire, the High Step Over and the Weaver. Each one difficult, each one able to be overcome. “Stick together with your squad, really motivate them,” Cadet Huntor Ross, from Hampstead, Maryland, and attending The Citadel: The Military College of South Carolina, said. “The more motivation, the more fun you have.” Ross and his “rock star” squad, as he likes to call it, adapt and overcome together. It’s not about being independent, it’s about making the best of things with your squad and your friends.

7. America’s Economic Commissar of Trade
Since taking office in January 2017, President Donald Trump seems to have declared or threatened economic war on many of America’s leading economic trading partners, including China, the European Union, and most recently Mexico. Two things stand out in all this: first, he presumes that international trade is a zero-sum game in which if the U.S. wins, some other country must lose; and, second, he presumes that he is an economic czar with absolute powers to do as he wishes with almost no legal or constitutional restraint. Both are extremely dangerous assumptions with potentially serious negative consequences for the people of America and the rest of the world. President Trump looks at the world with a highly collectivist conception of “them vs. us” in international relationships. Yes, there are individual American consumers and producers, but in the realm of global economic politics, it is “America” in confrontation with the rest of the nations of the world. Does “America” have industries and jobs that he considers valuable, important, and productive, or do they exist somewhere else on the planet outside of the territorial jurisdiction of the United States? Richard M. Ebeling, an AIER Senior Fellow, is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. Ebeling lived on AIER's campus from 2008 to 2009.

7. Debt, Deficits and the Cost of Free Lunches
It seems that every generation or two, fundamental economic ideas are questioned and challenged. The reasonable and important idea that governments should balance their budgets on an annual basis was challenged in the 1930s by the rise of Keynesian Economics and the counter-argument that deficit spending was desirable, if it was used to maintain full employment. Now it seems that any defense or desire for fiscal restraint and less government spending and borrowing are entirely out the window. Fiscal folly is the watchword of the day. It is not surprising that politicians care little about annual budget deficits and growing debt, since spending money is their way of buying votes from interest groups wanting to eat at the government trough. In America today, it is all a political game by which Democrats and Republicans pander to their respective voting blocs, especially in an upcoming presidential and congressional election year like 2020. Richard M. Ebeling, an AIER Senior Fellow, is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. Ebeling lived on AIER's campus from 2008 to 2009.

1b. These Are the Colleges Most Likely to Score You a Job in Every State

Considering how insanely expensive higher education is in the States, the least you can hope for after graduating college is getting a job, let alone one doing something you're passionate about. The harsh reality is, of course, earning a degree from even a top-notch school is hardly guaranteed to score you a gig out there in the big bad world, especially in light of a record low unemployment rate. And while your field of study has a lot to do with setting you up for success, where you graduate can also play a big part. As of 2019, Connecticut's Quinnipiac University has the best overall graduate employment rate in the country at 96.1%, followed by South Dakota's Augustana University (96.05%), with Ohio Northern University ranking third (95.86%). These are the schools that earned the top spot in each state.

1c. A preeminent servant-leader retires after dedicating 42 years to The Citadel
Thousands of men and women passed through Lesesne Gate over the past 42 years. Many of them have gone on to lead armies, governments, corporations, churches and community organizations. And, many of them had their futures fortified by this one man, Mark Bebensee, Ph.D., the man some call the “saint” of The Citadel. Now, Bebensee’s many admirers are wishing him well as he retires after dedicating his life to lifting those around him toward higher goals through a Citadel education. “During his decades of service as an educator at The Citadel, Dr. Mark Bebensee helped steer the successful development of thousands of principled leaders,” said Gen. Glenn M. Walters, USMC (Ret.), ’79, president of The Citadel. “A legendary leader and teacher, Dr. Bebensee exemplified the servant leadership he worked to instill in every class of cadets during his time as a professor, department head, assistant dean and as interim provost.”
