I am a 2012 Cedarville graduate with a degree in Theatre Performance. I protest the removal of the philosophy program at Cedarville. I protest the decision to remove a department that is centered around developing ideas. Students should understand that one’s right as a human is being able to have critical thoughts. They should have a safe place to converse on their thoughts and understand the human condition intellectually as well as spiritually. We were given minds as well as souls.
