A theatre major, an education graduate student and a writer are sitting at a bar discussing ASU President Michael Crow's New American University.

The dialogue moved from change to sweeping change enacted by Crow. Bother mother and daughter argued that he was doing too much, too fast and ignoring the arts and social sciences in favor of the hard sciences, which bring in more money.
Both could speak from personal experience.
