New searchable database identifies how schools perform on cost, graduation and loan defaults. See how schools such as Lindenwood University rated.
President Barack Obama used part of his State of The Union address Feb. 12 to promote the release of an education scorecard, a tool he said "parents and students can use to compare schools based on a simple criteria: where you can get the most bang for your educational buck." The College Scorecard was released the following day. It does not rank schools, like The Princeton Review or U.S. News & World Report.

In the future, it will also include average earnings for graduates who attended school using federal loan dollars. What does it say about schools in the St. Charles County-area?

Speaker challenges Lindenwood University students to find a platform to share their dreams with others.
Making a dream a reality requires a sense of purpose, strong principles and a platform to share your dream with others, says Latricia Bucker, an inspirational speaker and columnist for The St. Louis American. Buckner spoke to a crowd of about 75 people Monday for Lindenwood University's annual Martin Luther King Celebration.

New property will be home to a nursing completion program and possibly other health programs.
Lindenwood University plans to start a Bachelor of Science in nursing completion degree program at the former Barat Academy building in Dardenne Prairie next fall.

The property, located close to Interstate 40, was used by Barat Academy for several years. The private Catholic high school was sued last year by its landlord, CP-SPE, LLC for failure to pay rent. Efforts to renegotiate the lease failed and the locks were changed at the school in August 2011. Barat Academy moved to the former Gateway Academy property in Chesterfield last fall, and had planned to purchase the building in April …
