UCF announcements:

The University of Central Florida will continue to make decisions on a rolling admission basis. They encourage seniors to apply between September and November of the senior year for maximum consideration for admission, scholarships, and housing opportunities. They no longer require that a “Counselor Recommendation Form” be submitted, however, it will still be available on their website if counselors wish to submit one for any students.
Due to state budget cuts, several majors at UCF have been eliminated:Cardiopulmonary Science, Radiological Sciences, Management Information Systems, Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, and Information Systems Technology (at this time, Actuarial Sciences has been suspended but not eliminated).

Syracuse University has 10 Full Rides for African American Men and Women Interested in Studying Architecture
Mark Robbins, Dean of Syracuse University's School of Architecture is desperately seeking young men and women of color interested in pursuing a five year professional degree in Architecture. He says he's deeply committed to bringing diversity to his field and has scholarship money set aside to fully cover education costs for 10 students. He says that Hispanic enrollment in the school has increased substantially, but it's been challenging to attract Blacks. Syracuse University School of Architecture has a great reputation and this could be a terrific opportunity for someone.
