Founded in 1863, a residential college of 2,850 undergraduates and 1,200 graduate students.
Located on one of America’s most beautiful campuses — 420 acres of rolling hills in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area. Rests on a foundation of more than 300 years of Lasallian education, rooted in the life and work of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, a radical educational visionary, founder of the Christian Brothers and the patron saint of teachers. All undergraduate students participate in Collegiate Seminar, a series of discussion-based classes that examine the big ideas of the world’s greatest thinkers.
During January term students focus on one class, which is often outside their major during which students travel abroad, provide direct service, explore new ideas or take a courageous step towards personal change.
40 academic majors across three schools (Liberal Arts, Science, and Economics and Business Administration). 77 percent of classes taught by full-time faculty and no classes taught by teaching assistants. Operates on a 4-1-4 academic calendar, including two four-month terms and one four-week January Term. Every year at least a third of students conduct research with a professor — and professors often collaborate with the world’s premier research facilities. The First Year Experience Program helps Saint Mary’s students with the critical transitions from high school to college, and ultimately to successful post-college lives.
Saint Mary’s offers a Science Theme Living program, an Honors Living and Learning Community, and Lasallian and Santiago Living and Learning Communities (both of which focus on faith, service and community).
Students take part in some 50 clubs and organizations ranging from cultural interests to service and politics to arts and media.
More than 60 percent of students participate in some kind of organized athletic activity, including 11 NCAA Division I sports and club sports including Crew (M), Lacrosse (M), Volleyball (M), Water Polo (M, W), and Rubgy (M). Nearly 10 percent of every graduating class joins a major service organization (including the Peace Corps, the Lasallian volunteers, the Jesuit volunteers and Teach for America). This invaluable guide, now fully revised and updated, will happily solve one of the American family's greatest anxieties- college-just as it has been doing for thousands of others since its first edition a decade ago. Buy gold and silver coins and bars for delivery and storage has advocated a leading financial adviser in Ireland. It is common knowledge that in the hierarchy of bubbles, not even the stock market comes close to the student loan bubble.
And while we have previously reported that a shocking amount of the loan proceeds are used to fund anything but tuition payments, a major portion of the funding does manage to find itself to its intended recipient: paying the college tuition bill. Which means that with student debt being so easily accessible anyone can use (and abuse), it gives colleges ample room to hike tuition as much as they see fit: after all students are merely a pass-through vehicle (even if one which for the most part represents non-dischargeable "collateral") designed to get funding from point A, the Federal Government to point B, the college treasury account. It should thus come as no surprise that in a world in which colleges can hike tuition by any amount they choose, and promptly be paid courtesy of the federal government, and with endless amounts of propaganda whispering every day in the ears of impressionable potential students the only way they can get a well-paying job is to have a college diploma (see San Francisco Fed's latest paper confirming just this) there is no shortage of applicants willing to take on any amount of debt to make sure this cycle continues, that soaring tuition costs are one of the few items not even the BLS can hedonically adjust to appear disinflationary. End result: tutitions have literally expoded across the country in both public and private colleges. But while we know what the answer looks like at the Federal level, the question arises just how does this price shock look at the state level?
For the answer we go to the annual report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which periodically releases a report covering just this topic. The answer, in a nutshell, is presented in the chart below which shows the state by state, inflation-adjusted breakdown how much the average tutition has changed in the period between 2008 and 2014.
Our condolences to students in Arizona, who have seen a near doubling of their college tuition in just 5 short years. In fact our condolences to students in the six states where tuition have risen by more than 60%, in the ten states where it has increased by more than 40%, and in the 29, or more than half of all states, where college tuitions have risen by more than 10 times the Fed's inflation target of 2% per year.
Since the 2007-08 school year, average annual published tuition has risen by $1,936 nationally, or 28 percent, above the rate of inflation (in non-inflation-adjusted terms, average tuition is up $2,702). In Arizona, the state with the greatest tuition increases since the recession, tuition has risen 80.6 percent or $4,493 per student after inflation.
But in addition to the "supply-side" easy credit that enables college Treasurers to demand whatever cost they want, is there any other reason for this relentless price increase?
These sharp increases in tuition have accelerated longer-term trends of reducing college affordability and shifting costs from states to students. A large and growing share of future jobs will require college-educated workers.7 Sufficient funding for higher education to keep tuition affordable and quality high at public colleges and universities, and to provide financial aid to those students who need it most, would help states to develop the skilled and diverse workforce they will need to compete for these jobs.
Such funding is unlikely to occur, however, unless policymakers make sound tax and budget decisions in the coming years. But just as states have an opportunity to reinvest, lawmakers in many states are jeopardizing it by entertaining tax cuts their states and citizens can ill-afford. In other words, to mask their insolvency, funding for colleges has been the first outlay that states across the US were forced to trim: and the more insolvent any given state, the greater the offset that was passed through to any given state's colleges. This is indeed confirmed by the chart below, which shows the change in state spending per student over the same time period. During and immediately following recessions, state and local funding for higher education has tended to plummet, while tuition has tended to spike. This trend has meant that over time students have assumed much greater responsibility for paying for public higher education. Nearly every state has shifted costs to students over the last 25 years — with the most drastic shift occurring since the onset of the recession. The bottom line is that in order to perpetuate the myth of state solvency, the obligation to provide the funding needed for any one student's education has been transferred from the state itself to the student. Rapidly rising tuition at a time of weak or declining income growth has a number of damaging consequences for families, students, and the national economy. Tuition increases may be pushing lower-income students toward less-selective institutions, reducing their future earnings.
There are many more unintended consequences of this cost shift, all of which are succinctly explained in the full study which can be found here: States Are Still Funding Higher Education Below Pre-Recession Levels.
But while questions of fairness are largely meaningless in the New Normal, especially once the Obama administration is done with them, one thing is certain: this arrangement is completely unsustainable.

We certainly have a war to win - sarcasm is always a useful tool in lighting a darkened room where cockroaches live.
The real problem is that the American dream told them that an education would assure them a middle class lifestyle.
Once again, those of us who are paying for something WITHOUT borrowing money get screwed by the FED. You can see the tuition is due to the funding cuts -- they sent the money (what was left of it, anyway) to K-12.
The 2008 crash killed tax revenues so they passed on the lost revenue as cuts to the universities.
I drive by the U of Arizona campus at least monthly --Millions of $$$$ of new brick palaces --when in the internet age , do we need them ?
California always seems to be in the top tier; increased tuition and less reduction in its support payments.
Higher education in California may offer more competitive mating opportunities than other states.

Beyond the Classroom > Emory & Henry supports a strong research program in the arts and sciences. Vermont State Colleges, which now include Castleton University, are contemplating a new name. Three university employees are suing the state after North Carolina passed a law requiring public colleges to segregate bathrooms by biological birth gender.
Introduced, debated and passed by the North Carolina House and Senate, and signed by the governor in March in under 12 hours. The law, which also prevents local governments from passing individual antidiscrimination laws, was swiftly and forcefully denounced by gay and transgender rights organizations.
For many professors and academic leaders, many of whom are content to use traditional gender restrooms, the law’s impact goes well beyond bathrooms.
Both the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a UNC system spokeswoman said they were still investigating how the law would impact their campuses. Windmeyer also suggested the law could put the state’s $4.5 billion in federal higher education funding in jeopardy. Margaret Spellings, who is president of the UNC system and assumed office in March, has come under fire in the past for her statements on LGBTQ issues. Many individuals and groups, including Windmeyer’s Campus Pride, said use of the word “lifestyles” was problematic and showed a lack of understanding of gay issues. The North Carolina community college system was closed and unavailable for comment on March 25 (despite several emailed attempts), but it is covered by the new law and some of its campuses have been subject to accusations of transgender discrimination. Two years ago, for example, a transgender student named Andraya Williams was detained by campus police and escorted off campus after using the women’s bathroom. Several private colleges in North Carolina condemned the new law and assured their students it does not cover their campuses.
Guilford, as well as Elon, Duke and Wake Forest Universities, all said in March that students on campus were free to use whichever restroom aligns with their gender identity.
Wake Forest University and Davidson College’s presidents took to Twitter to reassure students and faculty members.
Also speaking out was the president of Northeastern University, which is based in Boston but has a campus in Charlotte.

The forty life-changing colleges profiled may be little known in a status industry, but they are outdoing the Ivies and major universities in producing winners. If it isn't, one glance at the chart below which shows the exponential surge in Federal student debt starting just after the great financial crisis, should put the problem in its context. As it turns out the answers is year, and it goes back to the infamous Meredith Whitney prediction that across the US, various municipalities and states are insolvent.
States (and to a lesser extent localities) provide 53 percent of the revenue that can be used to support instruction at these schools.3 When this funding is cut, colleges and universities generally must either cut educational or other services, raise tuition to cover the gap, or both. Public colleges and universities across the country have increased tuition to compensate for declining state funding and rising costs.
Over the last 20 years, the price of attending a four-year public college or university has grown significantly faster than the median income.5 Federal student aid and tax credits have risen, but on average they have fallen short of covering the tuition increases. Tuition increases have compensated for only part of the revenue loss resulting from state funding cuts.
While some states are experiencing greater-than-anticipated revenue growth due to an economy that is slowly returning to normal, state tax revenues are barely above pre-recession levels, after adjusting for inflation.8 To bring higher education back to pre-recession levels, many states may need to supplement that revenue growth with new revenue to fully make up for years of severe cuts. For example, Florida - where higher education funding is 30 percent below 2007 levels and tuition at four-year schools is 66 percent higher - is cutting taxes by $400 million in the current 2014 legislative session. Because as it turns out, instead of having the state fund itself and be able to return college funding to pre-crisis levels, that responsibility is now offloaded to the student. During periods of economic growth, funding has tended to largely recover while tuition stabilizes at a higher level as share of total higher educational funding.
In 1988, public colleges and universities received 3.2 times as much in revenue from state and local governments as they did from students. In 1988, average tuition amounts were larger than per-student state expenditures in only two states, New Hampshire and Vermont.


As Janet Yellen herself pointed out today, the fact that students are being saddled with record amounts of debt is regarded by the Fed as of the primary reason why the housing recovery has not materialized, and why household formation has collapsed and is far below historical (and expected) levels (and has indirectly led to such aberrations as the US "renter nation", and Wall Street firms such as Blackstone becoming the largest landlord in the US). While the recession encouraged many students to enroll in higher education, the large tuition increases of the past few years may have prevented further enrollment gains. Research further suggests that college cost increases have the biggest impact on students from low-income families. Perhaps just as important as a student’s decision to enroll in higher education is the choice of which college to attend.
As well, since everyone is unemployed they decided to go to school so we've got higher enrollments. Unless you like living in a place where there is fukking rain tax, I'd steer clear of this fascist state. For many, being involved is what college is all about a€” they want to make a difference in their community and the world.

Vermont Technical College senior Craig Shaffer is ambivalent about the potential change, while a faculty survey favored leaving the name alone. Such was the sudden and speedy birth of North Carolina’s Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, which forces public colleges and universities (as well as other public venues and government buildings) to require their restrooms be used only by people whose biological sex at birth matches the sign on the door. They see the legislation as a sign that North Carolina is hostile to transgender and gay people, potentially deterring prospective faculty members and students from coming to the state’s many colleges and universities. A 2014 clarification from the Department of Education specified gender identity and “failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity” are covered under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which bars sex bias by institutions receiving federal funds. However, if a commenter violates our terms of use or abuses the commenting forum, their comment may go into moderation or be removed entirely. The college was included on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction and recognized as one of the top 10 colleges for community service by USA Today College.
Because as it turns out, the main reason why so many state colleges have, at least according to the CBPP, boosted costs is to make up for the near complete collapse in state funding to higher education.
Annual published tuition at four-year public colleges has risen by $1,936, or 28 percent, since the 2007-08 school year, after adjusting for inflation.4 In Arizona, published tuition at four-year schools is up more than 80 percent, while in two other states — Florida and Georgia — published tuition is up more than 66 percent. Public colleges and universities have cut faculty positions, eliminated course offerings, closed campuses, shut computer labs, and reduced library services, among other cuts.
Other states are also considering damaging changes to their tax codes that would make it very difficult to reinvest in higher education.
Collectively, across all institutional sectors, students held $1.08 trillion in student debt — eclipsing both car loans and credit card debt — by the fourth quarter of 2013. For example, a 1995 study by Harvard University researcher Thomas Kane concluded that states that had the largest tuition increases during the 1980’s and early 1990’s “saw the greatest widening of the gaps in enrollment between high- and low-income youth. Even here, research indicates financial constraints and concerns about cost push lower-income students to narrow their list of potential schools and ultimately enroll in less-selective institutions.
Aoun, the president, said, “At Northeastern University we believe diversity is a strength to be celebrated, not a source of division.

For example, since 2008, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has eliminated 493 positions, cut 16,000 course seats, increased class sizes, cut its centrally supported computer labs from seven to three, and eliminated two distance education centers. Today, tuition revenue now outweighs government funding for higher education in 23 states with six states — New Hampshire, Vermont, Delaware, Colorado, Rhode Island, Michigan, and Pennsylvania — asking students and families to shoulder higher education costs by a ratio of at least 2-to-1. Between the 2007-08 and the 2011-12 school years, the median amount of debt incurred by the average bachelor’s degree recipient with loans at a public four-year institution grew from $11,900 to $14,300 (in 2012 dollars), an inflation-adjusted increase of $2,400, or 20 percent. How much does one extra TA cost in comparison with the tuition from 100 additional students? The average level of debt incurred had grown from $11,200 to $11,900, an increase of about 6.3 percent, over the previous eight years.

And three, does it make sense to have Vermont State Colleges as your corporate name when you have a university that’s part of the system?"  Spaulding says the Castleton “University” issue alone doesn’t justify a potential name change. But along with that system-wide focus, and wanting to improve the schools’ reputations, he’s wondering if a name like “Vermont Higher Education System” might be in order. That particular switch might not sit well with Linda Olson, former president of the VSC faculty union, who teaches at what is now Castleton University. She’s not necessarily opposed to the idea of a name change, but Olson feels strongly about keeping the word “state” in the mix. Without it, she says, it seems like the system is no longer prioritizing Vermont residents.
As long as I’m getting the same education I don’t really care what the name of it is.”  Spaulding says no one’s mind is made up yet about what to change the name to, or even whether to change it at all. The faculty survey favored leaving the name alone, according to the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus, and the student survey ends this Friday.  Spaulding says the full survey results will be presented to the board of trustees at their December meeting, where they’ll decide whether a name change is warranted and, if so, what Vermont State Colleges will become.
