3,100 students (most student atheletes) over 18 years took 'No-Show' classes to boost GPA's in order to graduate and avoid being suspended due to low GPA.
Paper classes were essentially classes that were independent study, had no professor and just required a paper at the end of the term. According to Wainstein, Crowder never gave students a grade unless they actually submitted a paper, but she awarded “artificially high” grades to the papers submitted regardless of their content.
In the end, the disparity was clear. Students enrolled in an Afro-American Studies paper class would finish with a 3.62 GPA versus a 3.28 GPA for students in a regular Afro-American Studies course.
For 81 students, the GPA boost from those paper classes gave them a 2.0 GPA that allowed them to graduate from UNC.
Wonder if UNC Women and Men's basketball titles/wins get vacated.
Roy Williams must be ****ting himself. Possibly stripped of Coach of Year awards and wins. Wonder if this puts his HOF seat in jeopardy.
