After two tumultuous weeks, Richie Torres will return to the campus of Washington College following the holiday break with a mission: Get fellow students to stop using Yik Yak. The app, a social-media platform used to post anonymous messages, has exploded in popularity on college campuses. Administrators even use it to gauge student moods. But Torres and other friends blame cyberbullying, in part, for the suicide of Jacob Marberger, the Cheltenham Township teen whose disappearance this month sparked a multistate search, halted classes, and brought a national spotlight to the small college in Chestertown, Md. "We're all telling people to uninstall Yik Yak, because it's harmful," said Torres, a Washington College sophomore who was close friends with Marberger.

While studying the Civil War, my students were surprised to discover that among its many consequences were the founding and expansion of hundreds of colleges and universities. With Southern Democrats no longer in Congress following secession, Republicans easily passed the Morrill Land-Grant Act in 1862. Government land was granted to each state to be sold, and the moneys used to create endowments for the maintenance of colleges that would teach, among other things, agriculture and engineering in order to "promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes.
