Preston Hill started this petition to Arcadia University and

Arcadia has always prided & proclaimed itself as a “safe space” and has used its resources to the best of their ability to insure its students find a secure, safe, and healthy community on it’s campus.

Due to recent events throughout the nation they have decided to suspend all on-campus activities and move classes fully online. Although this much is somewhat understandable due to health and safety concerns; it is uneccesary that the very students who make Arcadia what it is are being forced out of Oak Summit Apartments, a supposedly “off campus living option”. This living style offered an easy and financially supportive solution to alternative off-campus living and allowed those who can not afford apartments or off campus housing otherwise to find a safe space.

After jumping through hoops all summer to ensure the apartment style living would follow Arcadia’s ever so changing guidelines, the unexpected email hit everyone only a week before Resident Assistants were meant to move in.

This petition is for the students who planned on returning to some sense of normalcy living in the off campus housing option at Oak Summit Apartments. The students who must now sit another six months in unfit and unsafe learning environments without any other option. Arcadia should open their apartment style living for those who still wish to return to Glenside to have their own space with access to WiFi, a personal kitchen, laundry, bathroom, and bedroom so this online semester can be completed without the difficulties everyone faces at home.

Swiftly taking away the option of any on-campus activities as well as off-campus housing after preparing plan after plan throughout the six months already off campus is ignorant and irresponsible. The very small student body who chose Arcadia as a University and even smaller who need Oak Summit Apartments as a living option deserve some sense of accommodation.
