When "American Originals: Treasures from the National Archives" comes to the University of Hartford in February 2004, visitors will have a rare opportunity to travel backwards in time to experience for themselves the promise and conflicts that created the United States of America.
For much of the 1990s, the University of Hartford's full-time enrollment dwindled. Moody's Investors Service, the bond-rating agency, downgraded the institution's public debt. And for five consecutive years, beginning in 1991, the university posted annual budget deficits of between $1-million and $5-million.
All was not quiet on college and university campuses across the country this past summer. Many institutions were scrambling to meet an Aug. 31, 2003, deadline for registering their international students with the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigrant Services (formerly known as Immigration and Naturalization Services). The online registration program, Student Exchange Visitor Information System, or SEVIS, monitors the educational activities of all international students in the United States.
