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.

Tertiary Institutions in Lagos State to Re-open on September 14th – Governor Sanwo-Olu
Governor Sanwo-Olu orders the re-opening of Tertiary Institutions in Lagos state on September 14th.
The Governor revealed this on Saturday 29th August in a regular briefing on the state’s COVID-19 status.
According to him, primary and secondary schools are also tentatively scheduled to re-open from September 21th.
“This decision is not cast in stone and is subject to review of our ongoing modelling and what procedure comes out from the Ministry of Health,” Sanwo-Olu said.
The Governor explained that the decision was based on indications that the pandemic has peaked in the state, as the number of new cases continues to steadily decline.
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.
