UPDATE: Fitness Class Requirement Dropped

(This is a few days late as I am in my finals bubble.)

Lincoln University near Philadelphia has dropped its requirement for students with a BMI of over 30 to complete a ‘Fitness for Life’ class in order to graduate. Although I am personally happy that this has been dropped I still do not like how they still plan on singling out certain students, who they feel should complete the course, after a wellness class that is offered freshman year.

This is still something that I believe they should offer to everyone, not just those few students who look as though they might have health problems. It’s still discriminatory even if they do not force them to take the class.

Seriously, how hard is it to offer the course to all students? Instead of picking and choosing who ‘needs’ it.
