"I think success is doing what you odu- elemen- tary education, don't do philosophy or psychology," said Bailey Evans, Students enrolled at xie State University are doing their part to dispel the myth surrounding apparent useless degrees by speaking out on the subject.

Within the span of two nights, this forum sought to raise awareness of both women and men's issues.
