  1. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/04/19/students-who-attend-college-full-time-even-one-semester-are-more-likely-graduate?platform=hootsuite A growing body of research shows that college students who enroll full-time, taking even 12 credits’ worth of course work in a single semester, are much more likely stick with college, save money and eventually graduate. Yet while the researchers behind these studies encourage efforts to nudge more students to go full-time (ideally taking 30 credits in a year), they warn against neglecting the many who will continue to attend part-time because of work and family demands -- currently only 38 percent of community college students are enrolled full-time, according to the American Association of Community Colleges. In addition, they said colleges and policy makers should avoid full-time enrollment incentives that veer toward the punitive. Some critics have made that charge about the 30-credit provision in New York State’s new free-college plan, which means students will be on the hook to pay back the tuition costs of their second semester if they fall even a credit short in a year.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) stopped by the “Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” on Tuesday to plug her new book, but she also shared a few pointers on how Democrats should approach the next few years — including a Pixar-inspired analogy. “We cannot shoot at everything that moves,” she told Fallon. “Remember in the movie ‘Up,’ the dog, when he yells, ‘Squirrel!’? We cannot all go over there.” She added: “We got to keep a focus not on what says, what he tweets. We got to keep the focus on what he actually does.” But to Warren, Trump’s nearly 100 days in office “feels like dog years, he’s been there forever.”

The plan crafted by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo will apply to any New York student whose family has an annual income of $125,000 or less. To qualify the student would have to meet certain class load and grade point average restrictions, and room and board would not be covered.
