Stanford in the NYTimes: Heisman, Handlebars, and Hard Times

Posted by at 4:45PM

The New York Times has been giving a whole slew of attention to Stanford recently–and for those who have given up reading newspapers in favor of problem sets and papers, here’s a recap:
The Times profiled Stanford running back Toby Gerhart, who has been instrumental all season (and particularly helpful in obliterating highly-ranked Pac-10 foes Oregon and USC), as he becomes a likely contender for the Heisman trophy.
The Times’ editorial observer writes about the diversity of bicyclists and their equally varied transportation devices on Stanford’s campus.
As mentioned earlier on TUSB, Stanford and Google have teamed up to move the dissertation-publishing process online.
While not directly related to Stanford itself, the paper reports very big news from secondary education in California: the California Board of Regents has decided to raise tuition at UC schools by 32% to help keep the UC system afloat.
