International Gen Ed

I am writing in regards to the proposed international general education requirement. I think that as students we waste enough time jumping through hoops that are not going to help us be succesful or help us in our proposed profession. International studies is one such hoop. Mark Twain said “I never let schooling get in the way of my education” I suggest we do the same. As students, we just want to get on with life. Because there is learning after school, there is learning in life. A large number of students at the U have served missions, for 2 years in another country. To add another gen ed only frustrates personal goals, and wastes time. I have my next year planned out, and am taking 15 credit hours each semester just to get done in a year. Am I expected to delay graduation another semester just for another pointles General. Please, do something that would be unpresedented at the University of Utah and consider the students, and not just the Universities Image.
