Transfer students unaware of budget crisis - Emma James, Free Press

Students visiting USM for an adult, transfer and graduate student open house last week mainly described themselves as being excited to come to the university, but most were completely unaware of any of the program eliminations that have occurred this semester. Josh Grassman, hoping to transfer to USM from Sienna College after a hiatus of a few years, was a classics major but will be transferring into the communication program. Though he is switching majors, he described his feelings as “hurt” after learning about the eliminations of the program he once belonged to. “I took a couple courses in classics last spring,” said Grassman. “I probably would’ve tried to take more classes if the program wasn’t cut.”
