Federal Court Appearances In College Admissions Scandal Today

(Boston, MA) — A dozen people accused in the nation’s biggest college admissions bribery case are due in Boston federal court today. They include six college athletic coaches, an associate athletics director, two SAT/ACT test administrators, and two people accused of working with alleged ringleader Rick Singer.

Singer’s accused of orchestrating the cheating and bribery scandal. He’s pleading guilty. The case involves elite schools including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and USC. A number of wealthy parents, including actors Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, are accused of paying bribes to get their children into the colleges.

In related news, hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre and his daughter were forced to remove tweets celebrating her recent acceptance to USC that also showed Andre Young taking swipes at parents who cheated to get their children in.

It seems Dr. Dre forgot USC named a building in his honor after he generously donated $70 million dollars to the school.

White Yale Student Calls Police On Black Student Who Fell Asleep In Common Room

(New Haven, CT) – Yale University is gaining attention after a white student called campus police on a black student for falling asleep in a commons room. Lolade Siyonbola posted a video online of her interaction with officers, who said they received a report of an unauthorized person on campus.

She said she dozed off in the common room of her dorm while writing a paper, and the white student came in, turned on the lights and told her she should not be there.

Siyonbola opened her dorm room to show officers she lived on campus, but was still asked to show her student ID to prove she was a student. A spokesperson for Yale said the school believes the police followed the right procedures.

The dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences also sent an email to students discussing the importance of inclusivity.
