Clarification: Cooper Union story

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 04:25

Cooper Union's mid-1800's Foundation building, left, is a contrast to its modern unconventional campus, right, completed in 2009 primarily for the art and engineering schools, as shown Friday Aug. 15, 2014, in New York. Students and faculty from Cooper Union, one of the nation’s few free colleges, asked a judge Friday to block the school’s plan to start charging undergraduate tuition, a move the school calls a financial necessity but the critics say will alter the culture of a storied institution. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)NEW YORK (AP) — In a story Aug. 15, The Associated Press reported that undergraduates at Cooper Union paid tuition before 1902, and that the school then became free. The story should have made clear that while some students paid for classes in the school's early years, it was always free for others. There was no tuition from at least 1902 until graduate students started paying tuition last year.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 04:08

Walker Wilbanks is pictured in this undated handout photo(Reuters) - The death of a Mississippi high school football player three days after he fell ill during a game was due to swelling in his brain possibly triggered by overhydration, a doctor who treated him said on Tuesday. "This seems to be a fluke, freak tragedy," said Dr. Joe Pressler, who treated Walker Wilbanks, 17, at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Wilbanks was playing in a Friday night game for Jackson Preparatory School, the state's top private high school football team, when he came off the field saying he did not feel well, a school spokeswoman said.
