As a Marine Technology student, this is absolutly rediculous. I have never seen so many people as excited to be in class and to be a part of this amazing program. It makes me sick to think that Ms. Bev Perdue is trying to take away something as incredible as the Marine Tech Program. If she had a child in the program or considering a field such as this, the budget cuts would not even be an option. I would love to have her come down from Raleigh for one week to see what types of things we do in this program, and she would then realize that this is not a place to take money from however it is a place that needs to have more funding. She needs to think about how much hard work is put into conservation, and the study of the ocean.
Ms. Perdue hopefully you will think of us the next time you are eating wonderful fresh sea food, that is only made possible by people like the ones in the Marine Tech Program
