“Yes, if the other states are allowing it then there’s no reason that Kansas shouldn’t.”

“Yes, they should because some people are worthy of being honored, even though they may not have done all the necessary course work, but their life’s achievements may have qualified them.”

“Yes, if they feel like they deserve it enough and don’t overdo it handing out the awards.”

“If it is an honorary degree in something that the university is well-known for or excels in, then I don’t have a problem with it.”

After 4 years and $40,000 worth of debt; the school I went to had the cojones to charge $60 for the diploma/cap gown. Why is it that cereals give out prizes with their junk but colleges don't?
