COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The number of out-of-state applications to Ohio State University surpassed those from Ohio residents for the first time this year, as the university tries to offset a decline in the number of students graduating from high school in the state.
The university attributes the higher out-of-state applicants to its recruiting efforts in growing population areas in the Southwest and Southeast, along with overseas outreach in China, India and soon, Brazil.
The goal is creating a “brain gain” for Ohio State and for Ohio itself, said Dolan Evanovich, the university’s vice president for strategic enrollment planning.
The idea is to “bring in a very talented diverse pool of students to come to Ohio State that will eventually become Ohio residents and taxpayers,” Evanovich said. “
With the first week of March underway, we here at Rosetta Stone are excited to celebrate the new month and Foreign Language Week!
Foreign Language Week was started in 1957 by national foreign language honor society, Alpha Mu Gamma. In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower endorsed the celebration via telegram and Presidents since then have added their support of this week. Alpha Mu Gamma now has chapters all across the United States and organizes activities during this week to help students become more aware of the necessity and advantages of learning a foreign language. Other organizations have gotten in the spirit and like Alpha Mu Gamma, have celebrated the week with activities such as foreign language film screenings, foreign music and theater festivals, and foreign language themed lectures. Each Foreign Language Week has a theme and this year’s theme focuses on brain fitness: “Foreign Languages: They Nourish the Brain!”
Rosetta Stone is celebrating this week by hosting a special Google+ Hangout today, Wednesday, March 6th at 9 PM EST. Click

Lee works at Davyhulme Primary School in Manchester, covering PPA over the whole school. Lees school invested in a class set of iPads after Lee read some really interesting blogs about their use in primary schools. So, this year he has been trialing the use of iPads right across the whole curriculum.
Initially, Lee started a school blog as a way to showcase how well the iPads were working in school but also to try and engage the children after reading about the benefits blogging can have and the impact it can make on childrens writing. Lee then set up his own teacher blog after sharing some ideas at a Teachmeet event.
Mr Ps ICT blog focuses on Lees journey of using iPads right across the curriculum and right through the school from Nursery up to Year 6. The response has been great and lots of schools who are now looking at the tablet route are finding it useful as a reference point for ideas and apps.
Dr. Bruce Orkin has joined the Department of General Surgery at Rush University Medical Center as professor and vice chair for academic affairs in the Department of General Surgery, effective March 12.
“There is a long tradition of excellence in colorectal surgery at Rush and I’m looking forward to collaborative efforts among many departments.

More: Find us on Facebook Harlem Renaissance is a transfer high school; one of several created for students who have failed at other schools, and it is among 33 struggling schools, in line for federal funds to improve years of poor performance.
But after failing to reach a required agreement with the Teachers Union on a system for evaluating teachers, the Department of Education applied for a process called “Turnaround”.
The Turnaround model would release those federal funds without a deal, but Harlem Renaissance and the other schools would, basically, no longer exist.
But after a closer look at the school’s programs and following public hearings, Harlem Renaissance and six other schools are off the Turnaround list.
A city hall protest Thursday called for an end to the Turnaround process.
