Observatory Observations

Marquette University, a Jesuit school, has rescinded its offer of the position of dean to Jodi O’Brien, and many are speculating that it’s because she’s openly lesbian. [New York Times]

Though students who fill out course evaluations on paper or electronically respond the same way, they are less likely to complete those distributed online. [Chronicle]

Colleges across the country are banning smoking. Could Fordham be next? [Huffington Post]

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg broke down cried on the floor of a public bathroom over privacy changes. Maybe Facebook should stay the same for more than five seconds to avoid this problem in the future. [Gawker]

WFUV, Fordham’s acclaimed radio station, hosted its third annual gala on Wednesday and raised over a half million dollars. [Fordham Notes]

Schools are coming up with creative ways to save money, including… cutting the football team. No, Lincoln Center students, Fordham hasn’t disbanded our football team yet. Yes, we’ve had one all along. [Chronicle]
