Budget strikeout

The Athletics Department has suffered a cut in classes in the past two years, affecting both the students and faculty at City College.

In the last two years, one-third of the athletics budget has been cut, according to Mitch Campbell, dean of physical education, health and athletics. Approximately 80 athletics course sections have been cut, Campbell said, leaving students with fewer choices and fewer part-time staff members to instruct them.

City College basketball player Xavier Williford Jr. worries that the loss of classes might have a negative effect on some students.

“There won’t be as many outlets for students besides sports, so more people can get in trouble,” Williford said.

Though Campbell said he remains optimistic that the athletic budget will improve, the Athletic Department won’t be restoring classes any-time soon.

“There is nothing in the near future that indicates that we will be getting a lot of those classes back,” Campbell said.

Jazmeen Tribbey, a computer animation major, said she doesn’t know what she can do if the situation gets worse.

“They should bring back the [athletic] courses, because they’re really helpful for the students, or I might have to transfer to another community college that offers me the credits,” Tribbey said of the P.E. classes she needs in order to fulfill the graduation requirement.

According to Campbell, deciding which classes to cut is very difficult, but the athletic department takes into account the needs of the students and the ability of the faculty to teach the courses efficiently.

“[We will] continue to provide great service to the students that classes are in high demand and so I think that we will continue to offer the very best academic experience we can for our students,” Campbell said.
