Save the UC Davis Experimental College

This petition had 490 supporters

The experimental college is a valuable outlet for students to receive instruction in many disciplines and on many topics that they may otherwise may not be able to learn.  College is meant not only to increase one's depth of knowledge, but also the breadth of his or her knowledge; the experimental college caters to the latter of these two goals.  It gives students the ability to practice disciplines from martial arts to language, from yoga to music.  To eliminate this valuable resource would be to eliminate one of the few sources of structured, creative and physical outlets in which students can participate.  The experimental college has had budgetary issues, but that is due in part to the low price of its classes, a price that allows students, some of whom subsist on little more than pre-packaged ramen, to participate.  Though it has many financial issues, the loss of the experimental college would be not only be devastating to the students who sign up for its classes, but also to the university which will lose one more avenue for the enrichment of its students.
