A GWU freshman brought her baking business to college. Small problem with that.
Lena Geller makes cakes. Cakes with flowers. Truly clever cakes, with insults spelled out in bright colors. Lovely cakes with layers and berries. So when the George Washington University freshman moved from Durham, N.C., to the school’s Foggy Bottom campus in August, she brought her light blue mixer and loads of baking supplies. And this month, she was featured in the school’s student newspaper, the Hatchet, which chronicled the arrival of the baking business she’d hoped to run out of her residence hall’s kitchen   Read More ...

Where Wheaton College went wrong
Wheaton College’s football program made a bargain with the devil, as have many other college football programs. It strayed from its academic and faith mission and allowed football to become “king.” For big-time top-tier university football programs, football is a cash cow, generating huge revenues at over-the-top stadiums. For smaller schools, like Wheaton College, it seems to have to do more with prestige and satisfying the expectations of out-of-shape, beer-swilling alumni and fans, who seem to need a vicarious triumph to brighten their dismal, everyday lives   Read More ...

And while Brown has gotten plenty of credit for Michigan's overall defensive performance through three weeks, the Wolverines' defensive coordinator is heaping it all back on his players   Read More ...
