Commerce, TX –

Texas A&M University-Commerce ranks in the upper third in a national survey of colleges and universities by The Washington Monthly, a magazine of U.S. politics and government. The Washington Monthly focuses on how much colleges and universities contribute to the common good. The three major criteria used were social mobility, research, and service. Out of 242 schools, A&M-Commerce was in a tie for 76th with three others, including Princeton. At the top of the list was A&M-College Station.

A&M-Commerce students, faculty, and staff are being reminded to keep tabs of their identification cards. University Police has recently received several theft reports of Lion Cards and Lion Cash from the cafeteria. If you become a victim, contact the Mane Card Office and University Police during business hours, and UPD during non business hours.

For the third time in under a week, the A&M-Commerce women's soccer team plays at home. The Lions host Dallas Baptist Tuesday at 4 p.m. The ladies are looking to move over the 500 mark after defeating A&M-International Sunday to raise their record to 4-4.
