    The teacher that was in charge of graduation when I was in HS reminded us that walking across that stage wasn't for us and it was possible that we couldn't care less, but it was huge for the people in the audience.
    I would remind you that donations to Athletics don't go to the administration responsible for graduation ceremonies. I stopped donating to my colleges long ago when they stopped teaching.

    That's my point. People might want to differentiate between donating to Athletics and donating in general. I can support Eagle Athletics without supporting the USG.

    This is misguided. Any and all donations made to Georgia Southern- either to Athletics via the Athletic Foundation, or to the Georgia Southern University Foundation, go exactly where donors direct their giving.

    I don't want to get into the USG and how it views or treats Georgia Southern or any of the politics of consolidation or higher education politics in Georgia.

    I get what you are saying and where you are coming from, but if you actively choose not to support the University Foundation (which provides student scholarships, program support, faculty and student travel/conferences, etc.) that is certainly fine and a personal choice. But please do not negatively influence others who do wish to support the University.

    We need all the support we can get, and I would think this being a forum for Georgia Southern Athletics that we can all support both Athletics and the University, even if the USG has oversight.

    Apparently, 96% of 2,000 surveys collected from adendees of the recent commencement ceremonies reported a negative experience.

    I hope releasing the survey results and information about the size of the venue is a subtle cry to both the city of Statesboro and the BoR.

    The BOR will see it and immediately a new 25,000 seat convocation center with shared athletic/academic space is approved for the Armstrong campus.
