Article excerpt

Did the nagging pay off? Was it really nagging? Perhaps it might better be termed "encouraging." fm referring to the repeated pleas to our membership to provide articles for C&U, something we all apparently find highly desirable but which we rarely find the time to do.

So in this issue, the answer to the first question is a resounding "yes"! With the exception of the excellent article exploring online graduate school applications vis-a-vis minority students, everything else in this issue has been written by "our own."

Grade inflation and its effect on grade reports and transcripts at Indiana University is explored by R. Gerald Pugh; fraud on the electronic campus (shades of the totally paperless completely electronic campus!) is covered by David Sauter.

In The Forum, Richard Riehl gives advice on handling the potentially unhaldle-able; Tom Johnson provides a book review; and Jim Frey gives additional advice concerning international students.

All in all, satisfactory for now. AACRAOans, keep up the good work; keep those articles rolling in. But for now, this is the season for re-creation, so rest, relax, enjoy, and come back to first semester 2000 a new person.
