Change to MU honors College tradition upsets current student and alumni. MU’s registrar has recently decided to move May’s 2013 honors graduation from Francis’s Quadrangle to Mizzou Arena.

This has prompted over 290 students to sign a petition to not bring the ceremony back to the Quadrangle.

Senior Michelle Fiesta was the founder of the petition and states that her drive to bring the ceremony back to the quadrangle roots from her first memories as a Missouri Tiger.
