IMO B

the first part of the sentence is talking about vaughn clg. After that it is a case of comparison of students from both clgs.

The second clause must begin with Vaughn College, which is the subject; so A, C, and D are out (note that D begins with Vaughn College's students, the college should be the subject, not the students, since we are comparing college to college).

E is wrong because it says that students are stronger than the college!
