FourFourtwo is your daily guide to the best schools in the country, and this week we’re taking a look at a small number of schools in your immediate area.
Here’s a look…
Battling the academic rigor of an Ivy League school, many schools are looking to the Big Ten to help them take their course load off their backs.
There are four schools in each conference (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12) that offer an undergraduate degree, and some schools are getting more selective with their classes.
We’ll be taking a closer look at each school in the coming days, but in the meantime, let’s take a look!
University of Houston This year’s class of 2021 will have a new president, and while the university’s campus will be revamped to accommodate more students, the school has a number of impressive buildings to be proud of.
This building is one of the first buildings built at the University of Houston, and the exterior is filled with the iconic “H”.
It’s a beautiful piece of architecture, and it’s the kind of landmark that makes the university seem like a local institution.
The University of Texas at Austin The school’s new president and chancellor are aiming to change the way the school operates, with a focus on diversity, and in particular inclusivity.
In this building, you’ll find a new “Faculty of Arts” office, and a new center for diversity training.
One of the biggest challenges faced by the school’s LGBT students is a lack of resources to support them.
You can see this space in the background of the above image.
Texas A&M University The College of Medicine and the College of Dentistry have had a similar approach to diversity.
Both are based in Houston, but have a similar student body and focus.
They both have strong faculty, and have an emphasis on mentoring students.
Their students, and their community, will be a key part of the success of these programs.
New York University If you’ve been to a major university recently, you probably know that the New York City public school system has a huge gap between the socioeconomic status of the students in the system and the students that actually live in the city.
That’s not the case for New York’s public schools, though.
Students in the New-York public schools are more likely to be black, Hispanic, and Asian than their counterparts in the private schools.
For this reason, there are many schools that are focusing on diversity in their admissions, especially in the humanities.
With a new school, they’ve focused on building a school that can serve the needs of students in low-income communities.
A school like Columbia, which is a major contributor to the university system, has created a new program to address this need.
Colleges like New York University and Columbia are starting to get some of the resources they need to help students from low- and middle-income families, including a program called SES Matter.
SES Matter is a scholarship that supports students who are underrepresented on campus, and is intended to be a tool to increase diversity among students and support their success.
Other schools that have focused on diversity have included the University at Buffalo and the University in Houston.
Both are on the rise, but the former has seen a lot of change in the last year, as more students are able to attend their schools.
