UT enrollment retention spikes as strategy leads to rise in academic indicators

University of Toledo student retention increased sharply as the institution continued its efforts to increase academic standards and require additional academic preparedness from incoming students.
As we prepared for recruitment last fall, UTs Board of Trustees and President Lloyd Jacobs directed us to place greater emphasis on the recruiting and retaining students with a higher level of academic preparedness and were right where we expected to be, said Lawrence. J Burns, vice president for external affairs, who oversees UT enrollment efforts.
As of Jan. 24s 15-day census, UT enrolled 21,108 students, a 2.3 percent drop from this time last year. UTs full-time equivalency (FTE) the figure used to determine state subsidy is 17,798. FTE is calculated by the total number of course credit hours taken by students divided by 15, and often conveys a more accurate representation of the way enrollment affects an institutions finances.
Burns said a strategy including higher admission standards in several academic colleges, deferral of several hundred underprepared students in the fall semester and focused scholarship programs like the Blue & Gold Scholar Award had already shown increased academic achievement among UT students.
Kevin Kucera, associate vice president for enrollment services, pointed to a 7 percentage point increase in retention rates for direct from high school students from last fall to the current semester as compared to last year. The return rate jumped 14 points for Blue & Gold Scholars from fall to the current semester up to 92 percent from last year.
Were keeping a far greater percentage of the students we recruited this fall and that is exactly because were recruiting students who are more academically prepared, Kucera said, noting that the college grade point averages of Blue & Gold Scholars jumped nearly 0.6 points from Fall 2009 to Fall 2010.
Spring 2011 will also mark the final census report for several colleges that were created or merged following the reorganization of the academic enterprise late last year.
The elevation of the new Honors College along with more prominent colleges in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences will all serve to attract high-quality students, said President Jacobs, as will the new Judith Herb College of Education, Health Science and Human Service.
Jacobs also pointed out that the newly formed Colleges of Innovative Learning and Adult and Lifelong Learning will be leaders in helping colleges, schools and departments retain the students that select to pursue their degree at UT.

How To Choose Headphones For Your iPod When listening to your iPod, it is imporant that you use the right headphones to get the most out of it. The standard Apple headphones may be satisfactory but there are thousands of iPod headphones which maximise the audio quality.<a href="http://www.monsterbeatsheadphonesuk.com" title="monster headphones" target="_blank"><strong>monster headphones</strong></a> Your iPod sounds only as good as the headphones you use to listen to it.<a href="http://www.monsterbeatsheadphonesuk.com" title="monster beats" target="_blank"><strong>monster beats</strong></a> For normal use, the stock Apple iPod headphones may work perfectly fine. However at some point you may wonder is there are any iPod headphones out there that could offer crisper highs, more booming lows and better overall sound quality. With that being said, if you're only going to buy one iPod accessory, you should make it a new pair of headphones or ear buds.<a href="http://www.monsterbeatsheadphonesuk.com" title="monster beats headphones" target="_blank"><strong>monster beats headphones</strong></a> Whether you're an average listener looking to replace your ear buds with something that comes sans wires, or you are looking for top audiophile sound quality, a quick Google will show that there are a variety of options to satisfy any ear, and any price range from a few dollars to hundreds. The integral things to look for when purchasing a pair of headphones for your iPod include the: &nbsp; Ability to accurately transmit the sound There are a few different things you need to consider. <a href="http://www.monsterbeatsheadphonesuk.com" title="beats headphones" target="_blank"><strong>beats headphones</strong></a> First, what kind or style of headphones do you want? iPod earphones are usually sold as ear buds simply because having a larger, full size pair of headphones partially defeats the purpose of the iPod being the size it is and having the portability it does. Since ear buds fit directly in your ear, comfort can be a bit of an issue if you have overly large or small ear canals so keep size in mind when buying. Ear buds are the most portable, the lightest to wear and can produce fairly high quality sound making them a perfect fit for an iPod, or any portable player for that matter.<a href="http://www.wholesale212.com" target="_blank" title="Cheap Gucci Shoes"><strong>Cheap Gucci Shoes</strong></a> Another common style of iPod headphone is the supra aural ones. These are simply speakers surrounded by pads that just sit on your ears and are fixed with band that goes over your head or behind your neck.<a href="http://www.monsterbeatsheadphonesuk.com" title="monster beats outlet" target="_blank"><strong>monster beats outlet</strong></a> Supra-aural headphones are extremely comfortable to wear, however they are not nearly as portable as a pair of ear buds and are not favored by some people as they mess up hair or can interfere with hats or earrings and can fall off when being active (jogging, doing yard work etc. )#). The third type of headphones is the more full-sized circumaural headphone. This style of headphones fully covers the ear and is worn over the head. They have the ability to produce the best sound quality, in part because of their size and ability to block outside noise, and in part because larger and better sounding components can be fitted inside them. Because they are the largest of headphone styles, they are also the heaviest and the least portable. In fact theye not really considered portable at all and are best suited for home or studio use.<a href="http://www.wholesale212.com" target="_blank" title="Cheap Gucci Shoes"><strong>www.wholesale212.com</strong></a> So theye fairly uncommonly used with an iPod or any potable music player simply because theye big, heavy and can be uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time.<a href="http://www.beatsoutletus.com/" title="monster beats outlet" target="_blank"><strong>monster beats outlet</strong></a>

Mom called me at school on a blustery October day to tell me Grandpa had died. A neighbor had stopped by that morning for coffee and found him in the kitchen. He died of a stroke, same as Grandma. http://www.coachbagsale.org.uk At that moment, I understood what he'd clumsily tried to explain to me about the swan on that morning we fished together by the pond。
