NeverAgainColleges

An up-to-date resource of universities that are supporting #NeverAgain demonstrators against disciplinary actions.

Website is live here!

About

NeverAgainColleges.com is a resource that high school students can use to see if the universities they have applied to have made statements saying they will not rescind admittances if a student is disciplined by their high school for peacefully demonstrating. Read more on the About section.

Front-End

  • Adding "Press" section
  • Include a uni's statement on site

Data

There is currently the /scripts/ directory that hosts some rudimentary scripts to supplement data for NeverAgainColleges.com.

na_colleges.py fills a DataFrame of the colleges that appear on NeverAgainColleges.com. nacac.py fills a DataFrame of colleges that appear on NACAC's list.

Both Dataframe have different data and different columns names, so be sure to get affiliated with what they both return. compare.py contains a sample of how to retrive both DataFrames.

Some projects with this:

  • Use College ScoreCard API to get city/state/size/lat/long for each college.
  • Program that returns a list of colleges that appear on NACAC's list but not NeverAgainColleges.com.
  • Program that finds the most popular tweets that contains their statements
  • Analysis on size/influence of these admission office's twitter accounts

If you want to start one of these, Create an Issue or DM me on twitter!
