During the second phase of the recovery from COVID-19, NYU has decided to add another blow to its students' lives after kicking them out from NYU dorms during the early days of the pandemic:

"While the possibility of a fully remote semester looms as COVID-19 cases continue to increase across the United States, NYU has decided to raise tuition rates for the upcoming fall semester."

“We reviewed the proposed budget and proposed tuition increases with the University Senate’s Financial Affairs Committee, University leadership, and the Board of Trustees. Although this is a challenging time owing to COVID-19 and other issues, there is an ongoing need to invest in academic quality, student wellness, equity, inclusion and belonging, food insecurity, and financial aid. So, after a thorough review of all of these considerations, University leadership recommended and the Board of Trustees approved the tuition increase.” 

NYU is already notorious for its insanely expensive tuition, and now it's trying to make the students pay even more to help them "invest  in academic quality, student wellness, food insecurity, etc." despite MOST students won't even be able to come back to NYC and use any of the things listed in NYU's statement. Neither will the students be able to use NYU's school resources such as the library and the cafeterias.

NYU is being unreasonable, not for the first time, but hopefully for one last time. It is time NYU students put an end to this school's greed and force it to look at the pandemic from the student's standpoint.
