Benedictine College Students' Right to Aquatic Facilities

This petition had 352 supporters

Starting January 2018, current Benedictine College students' access to the Atchison Family YMCA facilities have been revoked without warning. The athletic director did not want to renew the contract that the school had with the YMCA due to apparent budget cuts. The YMCA's newly renovated natatorium allows customers to do a variety of water exercises that are ideal for physical fitness. We (the student body) believe that Benedictine College's liberal art standard allow for a proper expectation to have access to aquatic facilities. As Benedictine College has not provided its students with such a facility on campus, we believe we have a right to use the YMCA services during their normal daily hours at an affordable rate.
