RIT Semester System Protest sign now

We who are signing this petition all share one thing in common: we do not wish RIT to move to a semester system.

Our backgrounds are as diverse as the student body itself, for indeed, we ARE the student body. Among us may also be counted the alumni of RIT, perhaps even the faculty, the benefactors, and the friends and family of the university. We are vast, and we will be heard.

Student Government has voted against us, their constituents. President Destler has sided with them and the majority of faculty in favor of the semester system, rather than with the students whose tuition money pays those faculty!

We, the students, cherish our university and care about its future. This is why we are protesting this change that will rid RIT of its uniqueness and innovation, and crush it into an indistinguishable dust, sifting amongst the dust of other universities. RIT may be a fine institution, but what separates it from the rest is the driving whip of the quarter system and the practical experience of the co-op system. Even if some of us will never have to study under the semester system, we still recognize the value of the quarter system and stand by it.

So, united, we add our names to a great count that says, "President Destler, and all of the faculty and staff of RIT, keep our quarters!"
