Online courses have become more popular. Thousands of Georgia students now log on for college credits instead of walking into brick and mortar classrooms. But studies show that far more students drop out of online classes then their face to face counterparts. Some researchers at Kennesaw State University say getting on-line students to stay is an uphill battle.
Kennesaw State University has been given a $2 million pledge to build an art museum to house its permanent collection. University officials say retired carpet industry executive Bernard A. Zuckerman made the pledge. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says the offer requires the school to raise at least $1 million in the next 10 months.
The university system of Georgia found that very few students entering this year are undocumented. The analysis comes after one Kennesaw State University student was found to be illegally in the country.
In response to criticism from some state lawmakers, the state University Board of Regents says undocumented students are allowed to attend Georgia’s public colleges and universities. 14 state senators sent a letter to the Regents this week saying it’s against the law to admit undocumented students into state schools.
