Tennessee hauntings

Image
There's reportedly a few haunted buildings on our campus. And my student worker swears she heard my toilet flush when no one was upstairs in my office. Across the mountains, the most haunted place in North Carolina is the Biltmore Estate. Been there several times. From Travelandleisure.com.

The Most Haunted Places in Every State
Tennessee: Loretta Lynn Plantation House in Hurricane Mills Visit the Loretta Lynn Plantation House and adjacent cemetery for a chance to see the spirits of Confederate soldiers buried on-site, among other supposed apparitions. Tours of the haunted ranch are available daily, and often come with ghost stories. 

Best arial views

Image
From across the county. In Las Vegas, oddly enough, the view was from the High Roller Ferris wheel. We rode that two years ago at the ACHE conference. It had an open bar. From MSN.com. I think traversable is misspelled, unfortunately.

Awesome Aerial Views in All 50 States
CLINGMANS DOME, TENNESSEE  The view from 6,643 feet is worth a visit to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is free year-round. The highest point, known as Clingmans Dome, is reached by car and a half-mile summit trail traversible only by foot to an observation tower at the peak. On a rare clear day, there's a 100-mile view.

Private colleges around here are recruiting Hispanic students. Who knew? And who knew Hickory was so well regarded by Reader's Digest? Maybe there's a market for ETSU here that we're ignoring. From The Hechinger Report.
Needing students, Appalachian colleges reach out to fast-growing Hispanic population
Janeth Barrera Cantu has spent most of her 18 years living in a cramped trailer in rural North Carolina with her three siblings and parents. Eight years ago, her father was deported to Mexico, where he was shot and killed, a crime that remains unsolved. For several years afterward, her mother, Maria, was left as the sole breadwinner for the family of five.  The trailer is just down the road from Hickory, a town Reader’s Digest named one of the 10 best places in America to raise a family and that business magazines have hailed for its entrepreneurial climate. That’s where Maria Cantu earns a living cleaning houses. She now has a boyfriend who helps raise the children; he work…

Golden Gate University tops the list

Of Washington Monthly's Best Four-Year Colleges for Adult Students. Followed by The University of Utah and our ACHE friends--Park University.  I was a little surprised to see my alma mater listed since flagships steer more towards the traditional student. Among two-year schools, Weber State University is number one, followed by Utah Valley University and Central Texas College. Hmmm. When I go to Weber State's website, it doesn't appear like they offer associate degrees. And Utah does have community colleges...
