College in Penn. requires gym for obese

FANCY-FOOTED FRESHMEN

Administrators at Lincoln Univer-
sityinPennsylvania are receivingcrit-
icism over a policy thatrequires obese
students to take a.class to lower their
body mass indices before graduating,
according to The Lincolnian.
In 2006, the school created
"Fitness for Life," a program that
requires students with a BMI of
over 30 - which is considered
obese - to take a one credit gym
class before graduation, according
to Examiner.com.
With 24 students who still must
take the course in order to gradu-.
ate this spring, many students have
voiced opposition to the university's
involvement in what they see as a
personal issue, according to The Lin-
colnian. University officials say they
"are actively working to increase the
health of their students."

CRIME NOTES

University, University officials
have announced that the 74-year-
old program will be terminated,
The Huntington News reported.
A council of senior adminis-
trators, trustees, faculty, alumni,
donors and students made the deci-
sion, which has been under consid-
eration since 2007.
Northeastern Athletic Director
Peter Roby wrote in an open let-
ter in The Huntington News that
the university would need to spend
millions of dollars to keep the foot-
ball program running.
Football players at the school are
protesting the move. In a Hunting-
ton News article, Yaroslav Mukh,
a sophomore offensive lineman,
asks "why promise the kids that are
coming in here as freshmen that
they were going to definitely play
out their careers here?"
SOUTHERN COLLEGES SUED
FOR PRAYER IN CEREMONIES
Americans United for Separa-

tion of Church and State is suing
two South Orange County com-
munity colleges on behalf of stu-
dents, professors and graduates
for leading prayers during official
ceremonies.
According to the lawsuit, one
of the campuses, Saddleback Col-
lege, is accused of, among other
incidents, showing a video in a fac-
ulty training session that endorses
religion. The video ends with the
quote "only two defining forces
have ever offered to die for you.
Jesus Christ and the American G.I.
One died for your soul, the other
died for your freedom", accord-
ing to The Orange County Register
News.
Saddleback College profes-
sor Karla Westphal sparked the
lawsuit by contacting Americans
United for Separation of Church
and State and the American Civil
Liberties Union in 2004 after
finding the college's use of prayer
offensive.
