Rowan Students Split on Christie as Graduation Speaker

April 14, 2014

Students at Rowan University are divided about having New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as graduation speaker this year, The South Jersey Times reported. Some are excited about having a famous political figure who still could be a candidate for president in 2016. Others think that his recent traffic scandal makes him an odd choice, and they don't want a divisive figure. On Twitter, one person had fun with Christie's woes, referring to Rowan's location and the date of commencement: "Time for some traffic problems in Glassboro May 16th."
