I wonder if John read my rant(and rave) yesterday. I feel better today after his letter, knowing our Jesuit id. will be protected and the core curriculum and humanities will remain. My niece (an honors student entering her senior year at one of our top high schools and ultimately destined for an M.D. or PhD degree IMO) is interested in CC because one of her best friends' older sister graduated as a a Griff and enjoyed her time there . I was feeling my advice to her was going to be to take it off her list. But now I hope she'll be coming to lunch and we'll watch the virtual Open House and then take a walk around the campus. CC hasn't had a Demske or Cooke style fund raising drive in years. That will likely be the only way to raise the $35M (maybe $40M now) needed to finish Science Hall IMO. Fr. Cooke raised $95M, I recall. The College needs to pull herself together and that should be part of the process. I also like the idea of focusing on Basketball, Hockey and Baseball as a sports basis for growing the student body. So Let's go Griffs and get it done.

For decades I've read how important the Arts are to colleges, yet when the going gets tough they are among the first programs cut.

Come on - which is it?! If a future college education becomes all about how you're going to get a job on the medical campus or in some tech field, then I'm sorry - we are going to live in a very, very narrow world.

No thanks.
