Michaela Henderson started this petition to Clark Atlanta University and

Due to COVID-19 the students of Clark Atlanta University were sent home and forced to do online classes in March of 2020. Online classes made it more difficult for students to keep up with their academics. Some professors weren’t use to using Canvas and Zoom to teach classes. Which made it harder for us to keep up with professors who were learning as we were learning. It was hard getting in touch with professors through email, some weren’t responding for days if not at all. Which was unfair because we paid our tuition and we should be answered. It’s already hard to keep with classes because not all students have basic necessities to be an online college students such as laptops and Wi-Fi. Which is why we feel that all students should be allowed to come back to campus for Fall 2020. The students of Clark Atlanta University received a letter stating that they will bring freshmen and sophomores to campus. With mandatory COVID-19 viral testing prior to returning to campus, the mandatory wearing of face coverings while on campus, and daily temperature checks upon arrival to campus for all. So why just Freshmen and Sophomores what about the Upperclassmen who have worked just as hard to be at CAU. Freshmen and Sophomores take general education classes which is easier for them online than upperclassmen who take specific courses. It’s unfair for Clark to allow some and not all especially the seniors who are being robbed of their senior year, senior pictures, and the ability to get first hand knowledge in a classroom. Since we are now getting this information in July a month before classes were suppose to start students are now in debt. We have already took out our student loans, bought housing supplies, arranged travel to Atlanta, and not to mention the students who have things in storage in Atlanta. We have to arrange travel and go all the way to Atlanta just to receive our things in storage for the school year. Upperclassmen are tired of not being treated as priority when we have been at CAU for years and have paid our dues. With all the precautions the Clark is taking everyone should be allowed on campus or no one should be allowed on campus.
