Unrelated to college news, I would like to send my condolences to the family and friends of Cory Monteith, star of the hit show Glee, who was found dead this morning in a hotel room. I’m an avid Glee watcher myself, and it’s so sad to see someone so talented and happy leave us.

Onto the college news roundup:
