UPDATE: GC to play national anthem - sometimes

(Continued)



According to Bill Born, vice president for student life and dean of students at Goshen College, the anthem will be played only for certain sports, with the final decision on exactly which sports will be included falling to the college’s athletic department.

“That decision will be made by the athletic department under the oversight of our athletic director,” Born said. “Now for clarification. It won’t be played at select events for certain programs. If we choose to play it at an event, (such as baseball games) it will be played at each event of that program.”

In the end, Natalie Harman, a sophomore from Harrisonburg, Va., believes the change in policy will not change the view of anabaptist students.

“It’s kind of a little thing in the big scheme of all the things we have to worry about.

“Yeah, it’s kind of disappointing to hear that they caved, but it’s not really that big of an issue in the long run. I mean we’re still going to be Goshen College. We’re still going to be pacifists.”
