Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio State Returns $1 Million In Overcharges To Students
Ohio State University has refunded $1 million to 20,000 summer school students after imposing a fee increase that officials had promised wouldn’t happen.
A graduate student first noticed that students had been overcharged and brought it to the attention of student government leaders. Though tuition remained the same, fees had jumped $81 – to $323 – for the summer semester.
The university pledged that tuition and fees would not increase when the institution moved from quarters to semesters last year. It kept the promise for the first two semesters under the new calendar – but mistakenly increased fees for summer.
A university spokesman said students received refunds of up to $81 as a result of the error. Student government negotiated the rebates for months.
