A random survey by a Fiji Sun team found nine students living in a four-bedroom house in Vatuwaqa that has been set up to accommodate 19 people. “We chose to stay here despite the rent because it is closer to the University of the South Pacific (USP). This was a good alternative considering the location of the house and the lack of affordable renting options around here,” said one student who wished to remain anonymous for fear of being victimised. He said they were paying a rent of $225 a month per bed instead … [Read more...] about University Students Worst-Hit In Search to Find Rental Flats

Chris Quintana USA TODAY Published 6:00 AM EDT Mar 26, 2019 Zayna Achmar, who had been studying clinical psychology at the Chicago branch of Argosy University for three years, was blindsided when the college closed this month. The last days were “chaotic and emotional,” she said. Professors emptied out their offices, while students ran around trying to get their academic records. Even the library was giving away its books. None of this had been on her mind when the 32-year-old enrolled at the university years ago, hoping to get her doctorate. Several people close to her had gone to the for-profit university, and it was accredited, so she thought it was safe. Over the past semester, Argosy crumbled, it seemed, with little notice. “I am not just devastated for myself, but for the professors and everyone else affected,” Achmar said.

Rachel Leingang Arizona Republic Published 5:53 PM EDT Mar 16, 2019 PHOENIX – Niki Terranova has worked for nearly six years to earn a doctorate degree. She was finally set to finish her internship, the last piece of the degree’s requirements, on June 21. Graduation was in sight. She was picturing the ceremony, where she would get "hooded," a rite of passage for doctoral graduates. But all of that has changed. Terranova, 41, was a student as Argosy University, which abruptly shuttered its campuses across the country last week, leaving thousands of students adrift. Whether she will graduate, or have to redo some of her education, is murky. "To have done all this work and gone this far to do what I’m dreaming of doing, and then it’s going to get snatched away from me? What do I do?" she wondered the day before the schools closed on March 8. She's spent tens of thousands of dollars in tuition each year. She was owed more than $9,000 in … [Read more...] about Argosy University students struggle after chain abruptly closes
