Truly Standing Out Takes Guts

by Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services Your school has a campus, classrooms, professors, dorms, a cafeteria, a student center, and so on just like every other college and university in the country.

Despite that fact, so many admissions departments are still much more comfortable following the norm and looking/sounding like everyone else (your website, your comm. flow, your campus visit) versus figuring out a bold move that will truly make you and/or your school stand out.

TFRRS: How It Helped Shape Collegiate XCTF

chrisMby Chris Mateer, Front Rush In 2010, the foundations of college track and field and cross-country shifted. There was no massive legislation that was passed by the NCAA, there was no major scandal, and tracks remained 400 meters long. The change was brought on by a website with a pretty boring name and a very bare-bones layout. The site is known as the Track and Field Race Reporting System, or TFRRS for short. TFRRS is a simple website with a simple layout. It simply lists race results and filters these into various leaderboards and team rosters.
