TROY, N.Y. - Amanda Vandenburgh has a suggestion for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the school here that recently received $360 million from an anonymous donor: Share the wealth. Vandenburgh, 18, has lived in Troy all her life and can't wait to leave. She says the schools are terrible, the roads have potholes the size of picnic tables, and she once saw a man stabbed to death in broad daylight outside her front door. She wants Rensselaer Polytechnic - known as RPI - to remember folks like her, who can't afford to go to college, when they start spending the largest gift to any university in the nation and an amount equal to more than half of the school's $660 million endowment.

TROY, N.Y. - A study of 30 Adirondack lakes by scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has revealed that some lakes within the 6,000,000-acre park are responding to a decade of cuts in the air pollution that causes acid rain. Researchers found that pH - the concentration of acid in water - improved from 1994 to 2000 in 18 of 30 lakes that had been most heavily affected by acid rain. The reduction in acid levels caused increases in the diversity of microscopic plants and other wildlife.
