anyone else take offense to the coot billboard in greenville


Posted: Feb 12, 2013 9:01 PM
 

Off of 385 heading south. No 1. honors college according to a publication that no one has heard of. Lets stick to reputable sources for our college rankings please. Calhoun Honors College got me into MUSC.

#1 in what though? What's the actual title?

It says "ranked No 1 honors college" with no back up info. I googled it and could not find a reputable source.

Definitely sketchy - If it was the International Business School they deserve the benefit of the doubt but the Honors College?

the first American school to offer an International Business CLASS. Think it had something to do with BMW being near the Spartanburg campus. They were going to cover duty rates, as to find the most cost effective shipping logistics for either individual parts, prefabricated sections, or the completed car. They were going to have whoever was in charge of that for BMW teach the class as an adjunct. I only remember because I was shocked reading it. Coots....1st? No no NO, that's not right at all.

I take offense at losing to them 4 years in a row in football. Not too concerned about a billboard.

YES!! It made me sick this am.


Billboards, tv ads.....


Posted: Feb 12, 2013 9:55 PM
 

what's next, placards on bus stop benches? Why must they endlessly promote the school? The more I think abt it, the more odd it seems. Surely they're not having problems with attracting students. Between their lax admission standards and lottery scholarships and a growing population they must fill up every fall. Most peculiar...


Pandora Ads

Yes, I had to listen to an audio ad then have a garnet window show on my phone.

I guess Pandora is going to great lengths to get you to pay for their subscription...

It seems it is a publication of public university press.

I went back and read the standards, it seems that they are not quite number one, well, sorta, read the explanation below.

We believe that both listings below need to be considered in order to have a reasonably complete view of honors programs. OVERALL EXCELLENCE incorporates more university-wide data than the HONORS FACTORS list includes. Some of the most highly-regarded public universities will do especially well in OVERALL EXCELLENCE because of greater selectivity regarding the student body as a whole, while other public universities will excel in more specific honors features, such as those listed below. Please review our Methodology page to have a better understanding of the lists below.

Below are the top five in the category of OVERALL EXCELLENCE and the equally important category of HONORS FACTORS.

The first list below shows the programs that scored the highest when the following criteria were used to evaluate OVERALL EXCELLENCE: honors curriculum; prestigious undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships of the university as a whole; honors graduation rates; honors housing; study-abroad programs; and priority registration. Large programs with more than 1,700 honors students also receive bonus points for strong performance in curriculum, scholarships, and graduation rates. Retention and graduation rates were estimated when we received no data from universities.

The leading public university honors programs in OVERALL EXCELLENCE are the following:

1. University of Michigan LSA Honors Program
2. University of Virginia Echols Scholars Program
3. University of Texas at Austin Plan II Honors Program
4. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Honors Carolina
5. Arizona State University Barrett Honors College

This next list shows programs according to their HONORS FACTORS only, meaning that the university-wide data for prestigious scholarships is not included. One reason for this second list is that some universities face a much greater hurdle in doing well in prestigious scholarships because they operate in the orbit of major private elite schools such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Stanford. Another reason is that some programs, especially the newer ones, are a part of universities that have not emphasized scholarship competition until recently.

The leading honors programs in HONORS FACTORS only are these:

1. University of South Carolina Honors College
2. University of Michigan LSA Honors Program
3. University of Texas at Austin Plan II Honors Program
4. Arizona State University Barrett Honors College
5. University of Georgia Honors Program

It really pisses me off that the my beloved state of SC...


Posted: Feb 12, 2013 9:59 PM
 

should excel in education. As state we consistently rankl near the bottom in education, so when state of SC excels (Clemson or USC) it makes me happy. Put the rivalry aside; we need all of our public universities to excel to compete in the global economy.


i think that is for elementary and secondary education,

we fix those two, we don't worry about the third.
also, i could be in the minority, but i think the state of sc has kids just as smart as any other state. we just have too many kids/ parents that don't give a **** about education, bringing us down in the rankings.

If you google it all the articles talking about it come from a "soon to be published article." I'm still waiting for it to be published...
