Professor Jonathan Marks of Ursinus College recently stated in a column that students wanted to be treated like children. He sneakily suggests that Fresno University, which has adopted a new policy to be like other students, should adopt Barney, the purple dinosaur, as a mascot.

the column, titled "First Grade University," continues after a new policy from Fresno State University that, according to Marks, resembles that one could see in a primary school class.

The policy, proposed by Fresno State staff and faculty, encourages students to be "nice" and use the word "thoughtful". Brands, of course, do not go against these universal principles. Instead, he fears that Fresno State staff think these simple principles should be remembered to students.
