More on Columbia University's policy that you must know how to swim before graduation
Thanks to Chris B. who sent me the actual requirement in writing at the Columbia.edu site: "...All students are also required to pass a swimming test or take beginning swimming for one term to fulfill the swimming requirement. Students may not register for more than one section of physical education each term. Students who fulfill the attendance participation requirements for the course will pass the course. ..." [Link]
He also searched up the You Tube above of actual students learning how to swim at Columbia for the first time.
The moral of the story: send your kids to Columbia University!
