For the NCAA there is more than just March Madness going on right now; the organization currently is in court, hoping to overturn last August’s ruling from the U.S. District Court in Oakland, California, regarding payment for college athletes. Former UCLA basketball player Ed O’Bannon is behind the court case, which received even more attention when it became the focus of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on Sunday, March 15. In a recent blog post we discuss the lawsuit between college athletes and the NCAA as well as the media coverage associated with the lawsuit.

You might be a psychology major if… you have strong opinions on Freud, always know exactly what helpful advice to give your friends, and can’t enjoy shows like Dexter or Hannibal without some intense psychoanalysis going on. Psychology majors are often deep thinkers, analytical advisers and careful listeners. You get to delve deeply into one of the world’s most fascinating mysteries — why we are who we are. As it turns out, there’s a lot more to learn than just how to take 12-question personality tests. Here is a guide to being a psychology major.

Gender studies is an evolving field that’s become increasingly relevant in the face of racially charged situations and cases of gender discrimination. The major is pretty interdisciplinary—if you like history, science and pop culture, and are passionate about working through the challenges facing society today, gender studies is a great place to start learning the skills needed to address these issues. If any of that appeals to you then you should consider majoring in gender studies.

Last month we began a search for a group of students, who were willing to spend their spring break serving those in need. Students who were looking to utilize their leadership skills to make an impact in the community for our annual CengageBrain Alternative Spring Break Contest. Our search has ended with immense success! We at CengageBrain are proud to announce that the Alternative Breaks Damar group at the University of California, San Diego have been awarded the 2015 CengageBrain Leadership in Service Award. Joie Fan, Zenas Singh, Xuyao (Sunny) Jiang, Alma Montenegro and Connie Ruan will receive $2,500 towards funding their alternative spring break project. Congratulations to all that won and thank you to everyone who participated!
