It is very gratifying to see that Tech intends to restore actual physical education classes.

As someone who was a student 40 years ago, when we were required to take and pass six quarters of physical training, my only question is, “What took so long?” I never understood the logic behind dropping the requirement in the first place, other than the administration at the time must have thought it was too much trouble.

It is a known fact that the famous “Drownproofing” class saved numerous lives of Tech alumni later in their lives. My dream would be to see it restored to the place it was developed.
