The Timing Of Brown's Decision Was UNACCEPTABLE

– Various Brown University men’s track and field team members sounding off to the Stride Report about Brown University’s decision to cancel their 145-year old program. Adding insult to injury, the decision was announced after the transfer window has closed and after incoming freshman have sent in their deposits. If the Brown administration really gave a **** about the students, they should have made the decision last December so new freshman wouldn’t commit and so current team members could get the hell out. At a minimum, they should agree to fund the team through 2020-21.
