This is the forum for talk about SMU Football
Wasn't a requirement recently passed requiring all Student to have a foreign language before they graduate from SMU? Also Stallion, what about athlete friendly majors?

was it spanish sign language?
Derail the offseason!
...but our fans do.
SMU's first president, Robert S. Hyer, selected Harvard Crimson and Yale Blue as SMU's colors to symbolize SMU's high academic standards. We are one of the few Universities to have school colors with real meaning...and we just blow them off.
Actually, not true.
I graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science in Economics, and I neither took, nor placed out, of any foreign language. I did take a great deal of Spanish throughout middle and high school. One of the "arms" of the core curriculum was HEAVILY populated with foreign languages, but there ARE ways to avoid it. I, for instance, took anthropology, and that fulfilled the requirement.
That said, I'm not quite sure why we're discussing this here. It doesn't affect admissions, and I refuse to believe that any athlete is making decisions based on what classes will be required WHILE attending university.
Stallion doesn't think I'm a stinkin' genius anymore.
When SMU offers the same degree plans in phys ed and other sports related degrees offered at the big state schools then we will be on their academic level. Fortunately, we are graduating our kids unlike Saint Mack Brown.
