On-campus medical clinic earns Adrian College high marks in U.S. News rankings, president says

ADRIAN, MI — Adrian College has been named a “most innovative school” by U.S. News & World Report in its latest “Best Colleges” rankings.

Adrian College is No. 2, behind College of the Ozarks in Missouri, as a most innovative school in the ranking’s Regional Colleges Midwest category. Adrian College was ranked No. 17 overall in Midwest regional colleges.

Adrian College has been ranked in the top two most innovative schools for the Midwest for two years, and President Jeffery Docking said he attributes that to the college’s on-campus medical clinic.

“We are very fortunate to have partnered with ProMedica (Health Care System) and received financial support from Adrian Steel to build that Medical Clinic right here on campus,” Docking said in a statement. “Not only does it provide health and wellness services, it is also an educational facility for our students.”

The $2.2 million, 10,000-square-foot facility was built in 2017 as a collaboration between Adrian College and ProMedica. It houses the health and counseling centers, which offer services like medical exams, physicals, laboratory services, short-term prescriptions, influenza vaccinations and wellness education.

Adrian College recently implemented a new major and minor in public health, and students in the program will have the opportunity to work in the medical clinic.

The clinic has also helped monitor COVID-19 cases on Adrian College’s campus this fall and used CDC recommended strategies of entry screening and regular serial testing on campus, according to a news release.

At one point, there were more than 160 positive COVID-19 cases on campus, but Docking said last month the college was beginning to flatten the curve. Emily Kist, director of Adrian College’s Student Health Center, said the college was able to prevent a major outbreak by “sticking to its preparedness plan.”

As of 4:30 p.m. Oct. 8, Adrian College had 254 total positive cases in students and staff, and just three net active cases. One of those cases was in on-campus isolation, while the other two were in off-campus isolation, the update states.

Adrian College is still conducting surveillance testing for its high-risk sports teams participating in competitions, and ProMedica is assisting students whoa re symptomatic, whether they are athletes or not, as well as people who were exposed to or had close contact with a positive COVID-19 case, the release states.

College presidents, provosts and admissions deans were asked by U.S. News and World Report to nominate up to 15 colleges or universities in their Best Colleges ranking category that are making the most innovating improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities, according to the ranking methodology.

The most innovate schools rankings are based solely on the top academics’ responses to the question regarding innovation, which is a separate section of the annual peer assessment survey, according to the methodology.

Michael Onwenu Earns Highest PFF Marks To Begin Career Since 2006

181 players heard their names called before Michael Onwenu during the 2020 NFL Draft. 

According to Pro Football Focus, he’s outplaying almost every single one of them.

Onwenu earned a 91.3 grade from PFF in the Patriots’ Week 4 matchup with the Chiefs, despite the fact that it was his first career start at right guard. The 344-pound rookie did not allow a single pressure over the course of the contest, and he did not miss a single snap. That performance was enough to earn him PFF Rookie of the Week honors, but his accomplishments don’t end there.

Through four weeks, Onwenu boasts a 92.2 grade on the season – the highest of any rookie in the entire league. That grade is also the best by any rookie through four weeks since 2006, regardless of position.

Onwenu has played in all four of the Patriots’ games so far this season, but only saw the field for 34% of his team’s offensive snaps Week 1 against the Dolphins and 40% Week 2 against the Seahawks. Since then, he started at left guard against the Raiders and right guard against the Chiefs, playing every snap across both games in the process.

With Marcus Cannon opting out of the season, David Andrews out due to finger surgery, Shaq Mason nursing a calf injury and Jermaine Eluemunor missing last game with migraines, the Patriots’ offensive line has been volatile to say the least. Onwenu has taken advantage and carved out a role for himself in the meantime, helping the Patriots boast the second-most rushing yards per game so far in 2020.

The last time the Patriots took a Michigan Wolverine in the sixth round, they wound up with Tom Brady.

Onwenu doesn’t necessarily have 14 Pro Bowls and six Super Bowl rings in his future, but he is off to quite the hot start in Foxboro.
