Marist had academic performance directly tied into your on campus housing. In other words, if you did poorly in school, you would have to live in crappier places. The very best students got the best housing. The system is called "Priority Points" and you get them based on grades, clubs joined, etc. It was kind of like a public shame tactic in a way and that helped motivate. If you had 2 friends you wanted to live with in the best housing available, your 2 friends would be pressuring you to do well, since all your priority points are calculated together as a group. I actually saw some people kick others out of college friend groups, because they did not do well and would bring their points down as a group.

We can get creative with things like that. Also, we should be pursuing major partnerships. Marist has partnerships with IBM, a close relationship with ESPN (met Brandon Tierney while there and saw him host a show on campus), and also Marist Poll which is pretty popular and I believe the partnership is with NBC. I don't know of any partnerships SJ has with prestigious places like that. As the other poster said, maybe it's time we update our mission. By the way, Marist recalculates student GPA when they apply. They remove the "fluff" of gym, basket weaving, music, etc. and recalculate your GPA based on the core subjects only. They don't just take anyone. Not saying Marist is Duke obviously or anywhere near, but they clearly have high standards. Would be nice to see here.

College Admissions in a Covid Year: SATs Are Out, Personal Stories Are In

The pandemic has dramatically changed what admissions officers are looking for


By Douglas Belkin / WALL STREET JOURNAL

Sept. 17, 2020

Memo to high-school seniors applying to selective colleges: A high score on your SAT is out. A Covid-19 epiphany is in.

Hundreds of colleges dropped their mandate for a standardized test score this year as a result of the pandemic, but the replacement criterion at many schools may be just as daunting for would-be college freshmen: a new understanding of themselves and their place in the world as a result of the pandemic.

“This wasn’t something you could study for or plan for, but it offers a great opportunity for students to show us what they were able to do when they just had to figure out how to make it work. That’s a unique story,” says Catherine Davenport, dean of admissions at Dickinson College, which won’t include test scores in its admissions decisions for the first time this year.






Standardized college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT have been a fixture in the application process for most colleges for decades and a rite of passage for generations of college-bound students. But criticism that scores largely track household income, combined with pandemic-related logistical challenges, have prompted about 400 schools to pay less or no attention to test scores this year, according to the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, an organization critical of the exams. Now, more than 60% of four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. don’t require test scores.

Many students welcome the change, but the absence of a standardized score leaves a gap in the information most schools use to judge applicants. Two additional holes are left by the cancellation of most extracurricular activities and the inability of students in most cases to demonstrate interest in schools by attending college fairs or visiting schools.

Admissions counselors say they will place more weight on what remains: transcripts, grades and recommendations. They will also consider how students handled the limitations imposed on them by the pandemic and what they learned from the experience.


“Students should explain as well as they can the context of their lives during Covid,” says Eric Furda, dean of admissions at the University of Pennsylvania. “That means hunting deep for insight about how Covid affected them, how they were able to derive meaning from it, how it will impact them moving forward.”

Both the Common Application and Coalition Application, which together are used by about 900 schools, added space for students to describe their experience during the pandemic.

Carleton College admissions officers are seeking to build a class of students who are engaged learners and bring different talents and experiences to the college campus, says Art Rodriguez, dean of admissions. The paths students took when the routine of their lives was removed offers a unique window into their lives, he says.

“It did not affect everybody the same way, but it has affected everybody in some way,” he says.


Matt Bonser, the director of admission at Colorado College, says students who apply early-decision, which commits a student to one school before they have heard from any others, may have an additional edge this year. Admissions teams will face more Covid-related uncertainty as they try to enroll their next class, so many of them may be inclined to accept more early-decision applicants, he says.

As for students’ experiences during the pandemic, Mr. Bonser says this is an opportunity for them to illustrate how they showed leadership and perseverance. And if some students spent most of their senior year in their basement watching cartoons and eating Cap’n Crunch cereal, Mr. Bonser says he understands that, too.





“But hopefully at least there will be some glimmers of hope,” he says. “Maybe it will help them clarify their goals or what they are looking forward to in their future.”

So sad to see our alumni "giving' so low. It is very disheartening, because you know that at least a good portion of alums have good jobs and could give back. SJU helped them get those good jobs. Come on alumni.

I'm pretty sure that SJU has/had a relationship with Goldman Sachs where many SJU students got internships there. I also know our homeland security department greatly valued some of our cybersecurity and homeland security course tracks. I.C.E. recruited on campus with great interest, but canceled their scheduled appearance and the previous SJU jobs fair because of students protesting I.C.E. on campus.

I see that Princeton is #1 on the list. How sweet it is, then, that this news just came up today:

The Department of Education has informed Princeton University that it is under investigation following the school president's declaration that racism was "embedded" in the institution.

President Christopher L. Eisgruber published an open letter earlier this month claiming that "[r]acism and the damage it does to people of color persist at Princeton" and that "racist assumptions" are "embedded in structures of the University itself."

According to a letter the Department of Education sent to Princeton that was obtained by the Washington Examiner, such an admission from Eisgruber raises concerns that Princeton has been receiving tens of millions of dollars of federal funds in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which declares that "no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

SJU may be #170, but at least we don't have an idiot for a president.
