Amen! I was saying this the other day. Most students are over the age of 18. We are adults. Don’t try to act like we are pre-pubescent children who don’t know right from wrong!

Letter from Jennifer Peters, Murray State senior from Murray

I live in central Illinois and my daughter attends [Murray State] and I do feel like the testing is excessive. However I know that Illinois [State] is requiring students to take the same tests. In fact I have a patient that is 30 years old, married father of [three] attending graduate school and he is being required to take the same tests….too excessive. He works full time at State Farm and doesn’t even live on campus!
