You Only Live Once, So Do It Warren Buffett's Way

John G. Taft | August 28, 2014 | Healthy Living
Buffett used his punch-card analogy in an investment context. It's consistent with his belief that really profitable investment decisions are few and far between. But I think the punch-card analogy applies equally well to life, and to the decisions that define and shape our lives.

College Administrators Need Refresher Course in Due Process Under the Law

Andrew T. Miltenberg | August 28, 2014 | College
It has been said that Justice is a process, not a result. In the current climate in which over 70 colleges and universities are under federal investigation, the concept of due process cannot become a victim to a frenzied rush to judgment.

Summer Turns to Fall

Dr. Michael S. Brophy | August 28, 2014 | College
Orientations, convocations, photos being taken for ID cards, students auditioning for plays, fraternities welcoming pledges, walk-on athletes gathering up the courage to try-out, etc. That exciting time when it feels like the sky's the limit.

Mauricio Estrella | August 28, 2014 | Business
Every time, in the heat of arguing, it's in our human nature to do our best to win. But if we're not focused on solving the problem, we're wasting time and energy that can be diverted into something more positive.

College Savings 101: Financial Multi-Tasking

Patrick Kennedy | August 28, 2014 | College
The words "college life" and "savings" are typically not used in the same sentence today. However, for college students preparing to move onto campus this fall, finding ways to save money may very well be as important as their academic major.

An Open Letter To My Alma Mater's Former President On College Rape

Sophia Jones | August 28, 2014 | World
I usually take great pride in calling myself an alumna of The George Washington University -- but not today. Dr. Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, current president emeritus and a professor of public service at GWU, made comments on the Diane Rehm Show this week about how college women drinking too much is feeding the campus rape crisis, and in doing so perpetuated the dangerous notion that it is a woman's fault for being sexually assaulted or raped. Change is needed on campus, but it does not need to come from the victim.

Jamie Merisotis | August 28, 2014 | College
America's most affluent have made their fortunes in different ways, but one thing is clear: Education beyond high school is the common link among them. Of the 50 wealthiest Americans in the states, only seven did not obtain some form of higher education.
