What We're Reading

  • »Iowa Wesleyan cuts half its majors
  • IWC serves 600 full and part-time students. Sixteen of its 32 major academic programs are going to be cut. That will result in a loss of 45 staff and faculty members.
  • »D-I eyes 2016 for combined Final Four
  • While much remains to be done to coordinate having all three women's basketball championship divisions participate at the same site, the committee endorsed this taking place as early as 2016 in Indianapolis.
  • »Playing the D-III recruiting game
  • How are coaches able to focus their recruiting resources when most skilled athletes will choose to play for schools that can give them money?
