Lebanon, our beloved country, is going through a hard situation, whether on an economic level or the health crisis due to COVID-19.
This is not only affecting the country but it is affecting us students, constantly worried about our mental health, our financial problems, our future that is at stake especially for 2020 graduates!
Online classes might be a way to continue the semester but it is in no way a replacement for the actual classes. We think that universities must reconsider the proposed tuition since nothing's normal and this is an exceptional semester where students are not heading to campuses and aren't using the university's facilities and instead, they're at their home using their own laptops to continue this semester.
We respect the effort that the universities are doing in order to save this semester but this is not enough!
They need to rethink their decision regarding tuition! At university, we have always been taught to stand up for what is right, and here we are expressing not only our beliefs but also our rights!
