Meredith College, has dropped a conservative's least popular major, Women's studies. Located on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh, the college added the major during your blogger's study there and it puzzled KCC's mind. After all, aren't all majors and issues, women's issues?
Due to the poor economy, all colleges and universities are suffering and many are forced to look at eliminating less popular majors as a way of lowering costs. Yes, others were cut along with Women's Studies, but this was something special, a victory in an increasingly liberal institution.
Goodbye women's studies. May you never, ever return. Your elimination is an answer to this blogger's prayers and Meredith has another small check coming your way as our way to say thank you.
Editor's Note: Meredith students and graduates share a very special bond that's difficult to describe. We often tell men and graduates of co-education institutions that "you had to go there" to understand it, the traditions, and all generations of students went through. It doesn't matter if you graduated in 1923 or will graduate in 2013, we all share a special feeling about one another. KCC assumes that only graduates and students from other women's colleges can possibly understand.
We thank God that this is a much more conservative institution than those in the Northeast, such as where Secretary Hillary Clinton went to school.
Shameless plug: Your blogger is a proud member of the class of 1989 and recommends Meredith to any high school student considering a small college atmosphere. If you know someone who is interested in attending Meredith, this blogger can get her a waiver for her application fee. Please email KCC at the email me link above. They have a great atmosphere for conservatives and a college Republican club. Your blogger can set your student up with the right people.
(Above, Cornhuskin' Parade in 2007) Every November, Cornhuskin' is THE major activity and takes at least a year to plan. Classes compete against one another in a number of events and the day kicks off with the class parade. Every student remembers all four of their Cornhuskin's.It's hard to explain and you have to go to Meredith to understand...)
