Syracuse University Mistakenly Sends Out Dozens of Acceptance Letters

A major blunder by Syracuse University due to a technical error. The school mistakenly sent dozens of emails on Thursday evening congratulating applicants on their acceptance to the university, along with visa transfer instructions intended for international students.

According to Maurice A. Harris, dean of admissions at the university, acceptance letter which was intended to be distributed to a very small number of people was mistakenly sent to dozens of recipients.

 However, a follow up email was sent to address this error. “due to an error with our technology, this message was sent to you, as well as several others, none of whom were intended to receive this notification…” said Harris.

This mistake isn’t the first of its kind in higher education. In 2015, Carnegie Mellon’s admission office mistakenly sent acceptance letters to 800 applicants to the school’s prestigious master’s program in computer science — only to reject them hours later.

Harris went on to apologize for the mistake and assured people that the school has taken measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

Sanwo-Olu reiterated that restaurants are now permitted to open for in-dining services in the state, although they must continue to ensure spaces are only filled up to 50 percent capacity at all times.

On the re-opening of event centres, bars, night clubs, beaches, cinemas, the Governor said a review will be done in September to decide whether to allow a re-opening of such public spaces.

Responding to a question on whether the Federal Government’s 10 pm curfew still holds in Lagos, Sanwo-Olu replied in the affirmative.

“These are challenging times for all of us,” he said.

Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba


Tertiary institutions in Nigeria have been shuttered since March in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.

Nigeria’s Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, says tertiary institutions, shut in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic in March, will reopen “very soon”.


Speaking during a Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) programme on Saturday, August 22, 2020, Nwajiuba said the federal government is also working to end the ongoing strike embarked by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

“Tertiary institutions across the country will open very soon,” he said.

Quote “Private universities have written to us, requesting that they are allowed to reopen ahead of public institutions. Vice-chancellors have also requested that we allow them to reopen for their students in exit classes.

“We have also a lot of calls from bodies who want us to resolve the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities before reopening because some public schools which are not ASUU-prone want to take the advantage of the strike to move ahead, but that would destroy our public schools. So, we are working on all these calls.”
The minister added that the National Universities Commission (NUC) will carry out an appraisal of the state of tertiary institutions ahead of the reopening.



Quote “We are waiting for the same from other tertiary institutions bodies so I can situate them and present to the PTF on COVID-19,” he said.

“I can’t give the NUC a deadline on this because our job at the ministry is to wait for their inputs. This is not a political decision alone.

“If you ASUU to call off their strike because their grievances “have more or less been resolved.”
