Saturday Link Love: Poor Students at Elite Colleges, Urban Neighborhoods, and Professors

Saturday Link Love: Poor Students at Elite Colleges, Urban Neighborhoods, and Professors February 23, 2019

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!

The Language of What Happened to Us, on Rumpus—“All I know is that Mom told me this week how babies are made, and she said that they are made when a boy and a girl sleep together, and that’s when I knew.”

How to Make Grad School More Humane, on Pacific Standard—“[G]raduate students are more than six times as likely to experience depression and anxiety as compared to the general population.”

He Beat the Odds. His Research Focuses on Those Who Don’t, on Chronicle of Higher Education—“Jack wants people to see beyond his personal success to his research findings: Elite colleges not only fail to admit enough low-income students; they also fail to care for the ones they let in.”

Urban Neighborhoods, Once Distinct by Race and Class, Are Blurring, on CityLab—“America’s cities and metro areas bear little resemblance to the urban/suburban or poor city/rich suburban model of the past.”

Is Email Making Professors Stupid? on Chronicle of Higher Education—“As the economist Peter G. Sassone observed in the early 1990s, personal computers made administrative tasks just easy enough to eliminate the need for dedicated support staff — you could now type your own memos using a word processor or file expenses directly through an intranet portal.”
