Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

College Students Who Stay Too Long - ABC News: "Last month, members of the Second Task Force on Enrollment Strategy [at The University of Texas at Austin] recommended the school's administration adopt a 10-semester limit on how long students can stay to pursue their degree in Austin. This academic restriction would probably be the first of its kind, said Steven Leslie, UT executive vice president and provost, who appointed the task force.

'The intent is not to get out any student,' said Isabella Cunningham, the task force's chairwoman. '[It's] to provide the right kind of environment to have a successful career at the University of Texas.'"

As Bluto said in "Animal House" when Dean Wormer kicked him out of school: "Seven years of college down the drain."
