ATU isn't a closed campus in summer. It won't be as safe or comfortable for students. The curriculum at AGS is fantastic and helps students think beyond the confines of their tiny towns. Please keep it at the school that had the highest score -- Hendrix!

This new program is not what AGS is about.

I've read the reasons...and Arkansas Tech's proposal is simply not as strong as Hendrix's. In addition, value is lost by moving to Tech. Leave it at Hendrix!

I loved AGS and the Utopia it created. To this day I have very important friends I met there. I still remember things I learned and where I learned them. There is a connection to all AGS alum before and after my time and I want that to continue. It has to stay at Hendrix. Also, having a degree in Theatre I believe the arts are highly important to all students.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Changing the AGS program is a monstrously bad idea.

Having taught at AGS in the past, in Area II, I support this petition and question the motives behind the proposed changes.

AGS was one of the most transformative experiences in my life and should be preserved for students to come.

I went to Governor's School in 1985. It was probably the single most significant event that helped me decide who I truly was...not who I was supposed to be as defined by my family and peers.
