1.  Admissions in a Changing World

Whitman College - Niche
by Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed

"The 2022 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Admissions Directors arrives at a time of significant change for admissions, with more change coming soon: The Supreme Court will hear two cases involving affirmative action next month. Standardized testing’s importance in admissions is greatly diminished due to the pandemic (and the potential of the Supreme Court to rule against affirmative action). And a new way of doing admissions, in which students provide a portfolio but don’t actually apply to colleges, is gaining favor among the majority of colleges that are not competitive in traditional admissions.

This year continued trends of recent years, with relatively few colleges filling their classes by May 1 (or even July 1). However, there are some signs of (modest) improvement.

Only 36 percent of colleges in the survey had filled their classes by May 1, the traditional date by which students respond to admissions offers. Last year, the figure was 32 percent."

>> The Big Picture: "Inside Higher Ed also asks about filling the class by two later dates. Of the 174 colleges that hadn’t met their goals for the class by May 1, 17 percent had met the goals by June 1. And of the 144 colleges that still hadn’t met their goals by June 1, 10 percent said they had done so by July 1."

2.  Small Colleges, Great Tailgates

by Matt Brady, Tailgater Magazine

"There are remarkable DIII college football teams and towns that host incredible game days, a rich history, and make Saturdays in the fall a blast."

In no particular order ... 

Wisconsin-Whitewater - "Perkins Stadium is one of the all-time best places to watch a game in Division III football. This stadium will truly blow you away."

Saint John's - Anytime a DIII stadium makes Sports Illustrated's "College Football Dream Destinations," we must include it in ours. Clemens Stadium is also known as the Natural Bowl, thanks to its surrounding beauty.

Mary Hardin-Baylor - They recently built the state-of-the-art Crusader Stadium, which boasts the largest video board in DIII. The stadium is a must-see and the barbecue joints around the stadium aren't bad either.

McDaniel - When it comes to the best tailgating in the United States, McDaniel finds themselves on the list. (Fans) drive up to a ridge that overlooks the field. It is easily one of the most unique ways to watch any football, and definitely one of the coolest.

3.  NFHCA Watch List

The NFHCA Watch List represents top collegiate student-athletes who are early contenders for this year’s NFHCA All-American teams.

This list is intended to repres​​ent those field hockey student-athletes with the strongest potential for consideration to the current year’s NFHCA All-American teams. Nominating student-athletes for the NFHCA Watch List does not constitute a nomination or selection to the NFHCA All-Region and All-American teams. Student-athletes not listed on the NFHCA Watch List may still be nominated for NFHCA All-Region and All-American recognition when the nomination period opens.

There are 88 Division III on the "Watch List."
