  • The University of Wyoming is sticking with a marketing campaign -- criticized by some -- with the tagline of "The World Needs More Cowboys."
  • TruTV's new game show Paid Off gives players a chance to pay off student loans, calls on Congress to find "a better solution than this game show."
  • A new report from the Century Foundation found that statewide free college programs received more political support during economic downturns, even when overall spending on higher education fell.
  • A study published by the American Enterprise Institute suggests that the proportion of low-income students at selective colleges is edging up, not decreasing, as some other recent studies have suggested.
