SUNY Albany cuts

SUNY Albany recently eliminated the departments of French, Italian, Classics, Russian and Theater Arts.  I really like this open letter to University President George M Philip from Professor Gregory A Petsko.  It pretty much speaks for itself.

By the way, I'm a graduate of SUNY Albany myself.  I earned a Master's degree in geology there - a department which was once one of the best in the country but was also eliminated a few years ago after years of crippling budget cuts.  Then the University has the nerve to send me requests for financial contributions.
