Here Come the Students

I had the great good fortune this morning of running into new first-year students from Cambodia at my small liberal arts college today, and speaking a bit of Khmer with them (I miss the daily use of my language, and am correspondingly rusty).

In honor of the incoming class, and for other academics who may be reading this, I heartily suggest that all of us who are academic advisors read this entire post by the great Tenured Radical.

Because, if you do a bad job at academic advising, your students may end up somewhere in this excellent interactive chart about prison populations. (well, hopefully not, but I had to manage a segue somehow; this chart is awesome).
