This was not a happy gathering. The Citizens to be Heard portion of the Alamo Colleges board meeting, late Tuesday night, lasted more than an hour. And nearly every one of the three-minute speaking slots belonged to a frustrated student.
In April, the Alamo Colleges, a system of five community colleges in and around San Antonio, decided on the removal of majors from most degrees and transcripts. This meant graduating classes majoring in an Associate of Arts of Science program, would receive a simple A.A. or A.S. certification, not a specific subject major.
