Arizona State University. Your tax dollars at work. What can one add? Well, we can add this:
“The experience helped me better understand how pervasive gendered socialization is in our culture. Furthermore, by doing this kind of activist project I was no longer an armchair activist theorizing in the classroom.” she said.
Correct: "no longer an armchair activist." These students are now armpit activists. Excellent use of resources. I'm sure this "experience" will serve them well in the real world. Nothing like a university education to prepare one for the important things in life.

The extra credit part is the stupidity of education these days. But I guess they figure that, when they're charging $40,000 a year for a worthless degree, extra credit is the least they can give you. Although I have seen it start in public middle school, where you now get a grade for study hall. An easy A to raise your average unless you use the time to sleep. Then you get a B ;-)
