A university in Alabama has sued a former student who they said participated in a prank that caused more than $400,000 in damage to a fraternity house where he lived.

The federal lawsuit filed this week by Samford University alleges John Brody Cantrell and his friend, Christopher Wilson, went to the attic of the Sigma Chi fraternity house to play a prank on other fraternity members in April 2019, AL.com reported.

While they were in the attic, the lawsuit said Wilson stepped on and damaged a pipe, causing it to be ruptured and flood the building. 

He was not named as a defendant.

AOC hits back after Betsy DeVos warns ‘free college’ push is ‘socialist takeover of higher education’

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos slammed calls to “cancel” student debt or make college free, making a case this week against what she called a “socialist takeover” of education — and prompting a fiery rebuke from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

DeVos, who almost certainly will be replaced once President-elect Biden is inaugurated, has been a lightning rod for controversy since her tenure began in 2017; she’s pushed deregulation and aimed to increase due process on college campuses, to applause from conservatives and harsh criticism from Democrats.

But with an incoming administration likely to take the Department of Education in a sharply different direction, one of President Trump’s longest-serving Cabinet secretaries made one last case against “total government control” of higher education Tuesday at the 2020 Federal Student Aid Training Conference. 

“Policies should never entice students into greater debt. Nor should they put taxpayer dollars at greater risk. There are too many politicians

College basketball: No. 1 Gonzaga beats No. 11 West Virginia in Jimmy V Classic

Joel Ayayi matched his career high with 21 points and Andrew Nembhard and Corey Kispert each had 19, and No. 1 Gonzaga rallied to beat No. 11 West Virginia 87-82 on Wednesday night in the Jimmy V Classic.

The Bulldogs (3-0) struggled to get in sync early and again after freshman Jalen Suggs injured an ankle in the first half. But Gonzaga used a late 13-4 run to take control and scored six straight points late to seal it.

Derek Culver led West Virginia (3-1) with 18 points and 15 rebounds. Oscar Tshiebwe had 14 points and nine rebounds before fouling out with 7:26 to play. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak and dropped the Mountaineers to 0-5 in the series.

This did not look like the same Gonzaga team that won two shootouts last week.

The shooters struggled early and just when it seemed they were about get

Fair or unfair, America needs free college and student loan forgiveness

Larry Strauss, Opinion columnist
Published 5:01 a.m. ET Dec. 3, 2020

College is more than a launch pad to the middle class. It demands intellectual growth and the critical thinking needed to defend against disinformation.

Marching in the rain during our strike a few years ago, I passed a young man standing against a school gate handing out wet copies of a communist newspaper. Why, he asked the striking teachers, waste our collective energies and outrage on salaries and working conditions when the whole global capitalist system needs obliterating?

We marched right past him. We just wanted a little more pay and slightly smaller classes and were eager to return to our students and motivate the apathetic, counsel the emotionally fragile and mitigate adolescent rage.

I think teachers tend to be mostly more pragmatic than ideological. At least I am. When I hear about the battle within the progressive and

College football Week 14 questions include Clemson, Texas A&M, Texas

CLOSE

SportsPulse: Dan Wolken reacts to the second College Football Playoff rankings and believes Ohio State can get into the playoff without qualifying for the Big Ten championship game given the committee’s track record.

USA TODAY

There is drama in college football even when the weekend lacks major showdowns. Teams near the top of the rankings have to guard against overconfidence and handle the pressure of games that could determine if they make the playoff or have an opportunity to play for a conference championship. 

Week 14 offers this scenario. Three teams in the top four are road favorites of more than three touchdowns. Notre Dame, the lone team playing at home, is favored by almost five touchdowns against Syracuse. 

That doesn’t mean there is no mystery to what will happen Saturday. Could one of the favorites get tested?

What about below the top of the poll? Texas A&M and

Behind screens and in hospitals, South Korea students sit college exam amid coronavirus

SEOUL (Reuters) – Nearly half a million South Korean students took university entrance exams on Thursday, with COVID-19 students sitting in hospital and others separated by transparent screens.

South Korea is battling a third wave of coronavirus infections and authorities have taken strict steps to ensure all students can safely take the test, deemed a life-defining event for high school seniors to win a degree that could help land a good job.

Police and school officials guarded some 31,000 test venues across the country, which in normal years are usually filled with praying parents and cheering squads distributing hot drinks and snacks.

“It’s my second test, and I just wanted to get it done despite the risks of contracting the coronavirus. That’s all I was thinking about coming here,” Jeon Young-jin, 19, told Reuters in front of a test venue in Seoul.
