Outrageous Students & Teacher Get Naked for UCSD Final Exam
A professor at University of California, San Diego challenges students to act out their “erotic self” by getting naked for the final exam.
Professor Ricardo Dominguez reportedly asks students in ‘Visual Arts 104A: Performing the Self’ to be either physically naked or “emotionally naked” to pass the final.
Amanda Fitzmorris, chair of the College Republicans at UCSD, said today on “Fox and Friends” that only one student in 11 years of Dominguez’s course has opted to be “emotionally naked” for the exam. She noted that even Dominguez is naked for the final.
“We’re a publicly funded institution, and I believe that the taxpayers should have a say of some sort over this kind of adult-themed course,” Fitzmorris told Steve Doocy.
In a statement, visual arts department chair Dr. Jordan Crandall said, “Removing your clothing is not required in this class. The course is not required for graduation. […] There are many ways to perform nudity or nakedness, summoning art history conventions of the nude or laying bare of one's ‘traumatic’ or most fragile and vulnerable self. One can ‘be’ nude while being covered.”
