Clea Rose to get degree

By Kerces - 23 August 2005 21

In today’s CT (but not on the front page so not on the web) was a heart-warming story about how the University of Canberra is considering awarding Clea Rose her degree posthumously.

Now, the question is will they do this for every student who dies without finishing their degree? Like, for example, Steffi Zhang (who is in the news again today), the murdered Chinese student? Or is UC just trying to exploit this tragedy for their own PR purposes?

Now I just know I’m going to get in trouble for insensitivity, but really what is the point of giving Ms Rose her (unfinished) degree? It’s not like she’s going to use it, is it? And how much comfort will it really be to her family and friends to have a piece of paper on the wall in place of their beloved daughter and friend?

What’s Your opinion?

He’s much better dealing with one large unopened reem of paper than 500 individual sheets.
