Stressed students
Counseling centers at four-year colleges and universities saw a 16 percent increase in the number of students seeking help during the 2008-9 school year, but they haven't seen increases in suicide rates. More and more students are just stressed out and need help coping, Inside Higher Ed reports.

Friending and defriending
It doesn't matter how many friends you have on Facebook, a new study at Oxford University finds that humans are only capable of actively maintaining about 150 Facebook friendships, the Daily Mail reports.

Campus life
Choose Life at Yale, a small group of students who are anti-abortion, has struggled to find a place on the "predominantly liberal campus" and often feels misunderstood, The Yale Daily News reports.

The Vanderbilt Hustler takes you on a tour of the 19,500 square-foot chancellor's mansion in an audio slide show. While the mansion has hosted hundreds of ceremonious events, there has yet to be a student dance party.

The University of Virginia's yearbook, Corks and Curls, is folding after 116 years, The Cavalier Daily reports.

E-books
Publishing companies need to lower the prices of digital books if they want to stop students from scavenging the Web for pirated copies, The Pitt Daily News writes in a staff editorial.

Tuition rates
University of Maryland students will likely see their in-state tuition rates increase 3 percent this fall, as the governor is ending a four-year-long tuition freeze, The Diamondback reports.
