THREAD: I'm a huge advocate of college journalism -- hard not to be when it led me to where I am today. Given the #CollegeCheatingScandal, I wanted to see how college newsrooms were reporting on their own universities. There's so much more to this than Aunt Becky.
First s/o goes to @thedailytexan which put together this form for students from low-income, first-gen families about HOW THEY GOT to college: dailytexanonline.com/2019/03/14/fir…
The staff also had thorough coverage of its university's tennis coach, who is accused of accepting $100,000 to put a student on the tennis team who had never played the sport. dailytexanonline.com/2019/03/12/mic…
.@dailybruin did an amazing job breaking down how the tennis coach at UCLA's involvement. He is accused of accepting a bride to put a student on his team who never even played soccer in HS. She was the team manager from 2016-18. dailybruin.com/2019/03/12/men…
The UCLA student newsroom also wrote a kick-ass editorial about how broken the system is: dailybruin.com/2019/03/12/edi…
.@StanfordDaily explains how a student was accepted, in part, due to her faked sailing credentials. The sailing program accepted $500,000 from the man behind the whole ring's "charity" after that student was accepted. stanforddaily.com/2019/03/14/sta…
.@yaledailynews kills it with this story: The ivy's soccer coach spent seven months balancing his duties as a coach AND as a cooperating witness for the FBI. He left his position in November, but documents say he could have taken bribes as early as 2015. yaledailynews.com/blog/2019/03/1…
@thehoya, Georgetown's paper, talked with students about how they feel about scandal and their university's former tennis coach's involvement: thehoya.com/students-profe…
Wake Forest's @wfu_ogb takes us through the accusations against their suspended tennis coach, who was indicted for accepting $100k to get a student into the university who was put on a wait list. wfuogb.com/2019/03/head-v…
While everyone is talking about #OliviaJade, USC's @dailytrojan is examining its school's indicted water polo and associate athletics director and their roles in the scandal. dailytrojan.com/2019/03/12/ath…
The @USDVista explains how the head of an LA real estate firm got his son, a current student, into their school. He posed as a fake athlete, according to the court records. uofsdmedia.com/usd-admission-…
It's possible I missed some great student work, but 👏👏 for the college newsrooms who handled this insanity with thoughtful coverage. (Especially because I'm sure a lot of them were scrambling to find reporters able to work over their spring break!)
@wfu_ogb My apologies to Wake Forest -- it was their volleyball coach, not tennis.
