After years of debate, political correctness won out once again as the lyrics for “On the Banks of the Old Raritan” will be getting itself an update.

The lines of  “My father sent me to old Rutgers, And resolv’d that I should be a man” is being changed to “From far and near we came to Rutgers, And resolved to learn all that we can.”

What do you think? Do you think the change was necessary?
