So fall quarter 2010-2011 has just concluded, and students are now off-campus and on break. As such, don’t expect to see much campus news for the next 3 weeks. Even so, things continue to happen, so here are a few links from this week:
- Andrew Luck finished 2nd in Heisman voting to Cam Newton. 2nd time in a row that a Stanford player has finished 2nd to a player from the SEC championship team
- The LA Times reports that South Korea is trying to recover historical artifacts from various places around the world. Notably, Stanford has the first Korean encyclopedia. Maybe worth paying special collections (assuming it’s there) a visit before it gets taken back?
- Investors.com has a bit on Leland Stanford and his legacy. The picture of him looks pretty mean
- The New York Times blog The Choice has a post from Kori Hazel about applying to Stanford. Keep an eye out for him at Admit Weekend and around campus next year
- Theo Caldwell has an oped comparing the new TSA policy to the Stanford Prison Experiment. Weird given how Kori thought that Stanford was the key out of the prison
- A poll conducted by the AP and Stanford shows that people think the US economy would be better with more college grads, but support for public funding isn’t quite so good
