Nassau Community College has been removed from probation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and has again secured full accreditation — a key, independent affirmation of recent improvements touted by leaders at the 20,000-student institution in Garden City. The commission, a nongovernmental accreditor for public and private colleges and universities, said the school now complies with all 14 quality benchmarks, and its next evaluation is not due until the 2024-25 academic year.
And you thought YouTube killed the radio star. Suffolk County Community College students on Wednesday launch the school’s first-ever radio station for all to tune into. The college converted storage space next to its radio and television production studios into a fully functional, live internet radio station. Construction began over the summer. Programming will be prerecorded by students and streamed 24 hours per day at scccir.com.
The number of international students studying at U.S. colleges grew 3.4 percent in the 2016-17 academic year from the previous year to 1.08 million, but the trend is threatened by a drop in new student enrollments, according to reports released Monday by the Institute of International Education. About 10,000 fewer new students from other countries came into the U.S. higher education system in fall 2016 — the first decline in the 12 years the report has counted new international students.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
