Save the UCSB Gymnastics Program and Renew Coach Badulescu's Contract
We, the students at UCSB, call for the gymnastics-apparatus and tumbling classes, led by Coach Mircea Badulescu, to not be removed from the ESS department here at UCSB.
The program is very important to all of us students; many of us continue to retake the classes every quarter because we enjoy the instruction and learning under such an accomplished and knowledgeable head coach. The classes are extremely rewarding and provide us with useful skillsets applicable within and without the gymnasium. Coach Badulescu has been coaching at UCSB for nearly 32 years; it would be a huge loss for the department and the university if the program were to be shut down, and Coach Badulescu had to leave. His decorated history of accomplishments in the gymnastics world demonstrate that he is more than qualified to coach the classes. He is respected and beloved by all the students who sign up each quarter.
