    “Splitting the graduation ceremony for the class of 2020 into two parts, one for those graduating with a Bachelor’s of Arts and a second for those graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science” is a terrible idea that represents the complete antithesis of everything that a liberal arts education is supposed to represent in the 21st Century.

    Trinity students are not just *one* thing. This is not a large research institution where students are forced to declare their major at the outset. Many students combine interests in the arts and the sciences. Almost all Trinity students have friendships with people who are pursuing a B.A. and with people who are pursuing a B.S. They have been going to school together for four years and they want to walk across the graduation stage together.

    If we don’t have enough seats for all of the family members, we simply need to find a larger venue. I’m sure the AT&T Center could accommodate our student body. That would be a much better idea than imposing these artificial boundaries on a diverse, interdisciplinary student body.

    We are supposed to be bringing the liberal arts into the 21st Century and *not* retreating to the simplistic specialization of a previous era. This is a bad idea.
