Swim if you want to graduate

Apparently that’s what Undergraduate students have to do in order to graduate and start their six figure salary jobs. Stephanie Yeh a student at the prestigious MIT has been ranked on top of her graduating class and was a month away from graduating. The only downside was that she had to pass a swimming test set by the school, and she never stepped foot inside a swimming pool. A guideline set by MIT during World War II. The entire recent freshman class has to under go this critical stage as they embark upon another chapter in their life.

Schools all across the country are making this as a standard norm and want their students to learn swimming at least by the time they are approaching upon their graduation date.

Time to sink or graduate

I think this should be necessary at high school level and not at the College or university level.
