Earlier today, the University announced details for the upcoming Spring Commencement. There are a few nice attributes to the plan; but the glaring omission is that there will be no major speaker.
As a graduating senior, I have to say that I'm incredibly disappointed with this decision. I know it's the University's 200th birthday and we should celebrate that occasion; but, the vast majority of seniors disapprove of this plan and to see the administration move forward with it anyway feels like a slap to the face. Past graduating classes have gotten Presidents, CEOs, and other important leaders to our country. We get faculty and a video.
I know this is a sports blog and if I'm out of place, downvote away. I just needed to vent a bit and figured a few other Wolverines might be able to relate.
