..... [article excerpt] ...... Today’s adults grew up with asphalt playgrounds, playing outside unsupervised until dinner.

Ask just about any high school senior or junior — or their parents — and they’ll tell you that getting into a selective college is harder than it used to be. They’re right about that. But the reasons for the newfound difficulty are not well understood. Population growth plays a role, but the number of teenagers is not too much…
Few major languages have felt the effects of globalization and modernization more acutely than Mandarin. The increasing use of keyboard devices, for example, has caused many Chinese to forget how to write characters by hand, to the extent that there is even a popular television show in which contestants compete to write complicated characters from memory.

[Alumni News: BCS alumna Shani Shih studied abroad in Nepal and India with a Tibetan studies program in Fall 2013, and remains involved in the Tibetan community though her work with Machik, a Tibetan organization in Washington D.C. She published this paper recently. The Abstract of the paper is reprinted here] This paper is an investigation of identity in the Tibetan diaspora in India, informed by the oral histories and narratives of Tibetan diasporic youth living in the capital city of Delhi.
