Weight loss requirement to graduate college

Lincoln University, a primarily black university, requires students to have their BMI tested and their waist circumference measured. Those above a certain threshold have to take an exercise class that meets three times a week or else they will not be allowed to graduate. The university sees this as part of their responsibility to help students meet the real world head on by addressing “when certain factors, certain behaviors, attitudes, whatever, are going to hinder that student from achieving and maximizing their life goals” (never mind that the chairman of the department can’t even write a grammatically correct sentence and understand the difference between a singular subject and plural objects).

Some people might think that they’ve gone too far. I think that they haven’t gone far enough. Here are some more requirements I think should be implemented:

  • Smokers should be required to do cardiovascular activity three hours a week.
  • Students with perpetual BO should be hosed down and scrubbed with brushes at least twice a week.
  • Everyone who wears their pants down too far or clothes that are too tight resulting in layers of fat sticking out needs to take “Tim Gunn 101: Fashion Mistakes and You”.
  • Sluts and manwhores are required to work once a week at the local VD clinic and once a week at the local abortion clinic.
  • Anybody who has fingernails that are longer than an inch must take an intensive advanced typing class.
  • All virgins must take a class trip to Vegas to lose their virginity.
  • Vegetarians must kill one cow a month.
  • Students who drink more than one alcoholic drink a week will be required to go live under a bridge and share a bottle of hooch with a hobo every other Thursday.
  • Anyone who lies will be killed by ninjas for being dishonorable.
  • Everyone with a facial tattoo or other tacky tattoo must practice saying “Would you like fries with that?” 100 times a week.
  • Anyone caught playing roleplaying games will be required to join the football, lacrosse, or rugby team.
  • Any student who plays competitive sports must take one business class, one marketing class, and one How To Kill Your Wife and Get Away With It Like OJ class.
  • All students with a GPA of 3.8 or higher should be required to attend a seminar entitled “Your GPA doesn’t mean shit after you get your job so don’t rely on it.”
  • Any student caught cheating will be bailed out by the university with a full scholarship and a $20,000/year stipend.

Maybe if all universities followed these guidelines, we’d end up with a graduating class that could reach their full potential and maximize their life goals. We can only dream!

    “All students with a GPA of 3.8 or higher should be required to attend a seminar entitled “Your GPA doesn’t mean shit after you get your job so don’t rely on it.”

    I think I could teach that one.

    My question is not whether or not the department chair can write a grammatically correct sentence, but whether or not he and all his staff are in good enough physical shape to be able to warrant mandating this rule upon students.

    ‘All students with a GPA of 3.8 or higher should be required to attend a seminar entitled “Your GPA doesn’t mean shit after you get your job so don’t rely on it.”‘

    Ha ha. Totally.

    I read that story and couldn’t believe it was true. It’s one thing to require your students to take a fitness course sometime during their curriculum, but they have gone too far. College students are adults, they are free to make their own choices and live any lifestyle they desire. What this school is doing is wrong.

    Another rule is if you are into anal, you should be required to have your anus bleached. No one likes a dirty asshole.

    I can’t believe how incredibly misguided these policy makers are. Does this mean if studies show that attractive people do better in corporate America that a school could potentially say that you had to be pretty/handsome to graduate? LAME. I mean, who would network our computers or do our taxes, then? ::ducks::

    ‘All students with a GPA of 3.8 or higher should be required to attend a seminar entitled “Your GPA doesn’t mean shit after you get your job so don’t rely on it.” Thank God. I’ll stop studying so hard. A nice C average should do just fine!

    I think that the Tim Gunn 101 rule should be eliminated as soon as possible.

    And my brother in law, who used to be into the role playing games, is now into Jugging. A game fought with weapons for a skull.

    I tried to leave a comment on the story itself but I think CNN ate it.

    This policy is discrimination and makes me sick to my stomach. I can’t believe no one has complained until now — and I can’t believe that they haven’t been sued.
