Jenevieve Lettsome started this petition to Administration of Washington Adventist University

We, the students of Washington Adventist University, are tired. We are tired, sick, and stuck in the middle of a pandemic. We have been alerted to the fact that the Administration has decided to cut down our usual week-long spring break to only being the 11-12 of March (Thursday-Weekend) and expect it to be a functional and effective “break.” The reality is, with both teachers and students stuck in isolation and a frustrating lack of change and environmental stimulus, we do not believe that this is choice was made in our best interests.

 


During the time of spring break, many students take this time to apply for internships, graduate schools, and summer programs. Many also use this time as a moment of mental peace before continuing into the mundane life of being attached to our screens, hoping that WiFi doesn’t cut out.

 


We believe that the administration should extend our spring break to a week (March 12-20) in the understanding that students and teachers do indeed need a break from our screens and the damaging effects of isolation, depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, and stress-induced immune dysregulation.
