Alumni, parents & CMU

Tribune-Review
Carnegie Mellon University police on Friday, May 10, 2013, filed charges of indecent exposure against two art students accused of public nudity — including sophomore Katherine B. O’Connor, 19 — during a campus parade sponsored by the College of Fine Arts. O'Connor is accused of parodying the pope while naked from the waist-down.

When the young woman attending Carnegie Mellon University paraded around as the pope, naked from the waist down, I thought her parents and the school would be aghast.

Obviously, I was mistaken, because Christian-bashing seems to be very popular these days. If the costume had been of Muhammad, I wonder what the reaction would have been.

College alumni are encouraged to support their alma maters. If CMU alumni continue financial contributions and/or express no outrage about this incident, we must assume they fully support the direction chosen by the university.

Parents of potential future CMU students may want to consider sending their children and tuition to another school with a different direction.
