Wed, 2 Apr 2008 00:11:30 EST Help me? This may be a lot to ask, but I am graduating this summer at UofPhx Online and just found out some sad news. Apparently they do not recognize honors at graduation because some students can graduate with 9 credits remaining. I have started a petition to get the board members to notice that this rule should be changed. I have never done anything like this before. Please sign my petition if you feel this is wrong. I promise I will not bother you with this agian. <BR> <BR> Rachel <BR> <BR>... Mon, 28 Jan 2008 22:50:10 EST New I thought that I would join this sparksteam.
