Not only is this pandemic impacting our mental health but the stress of transitioning to a new platform of learning as well as less instruction in person with the professor is impacting our mental health. We are paying for more than what we are getting and a break would be very helpful.

As a student who already has the stress of trying to figure out what our next steps are the fact that schools all over expect so much from us. Don’t forget we PAY YOU! We have had to deal with what every other person is dealing with yes. But how do you honestly expect students at this point in time to not only work and do school but how about the fact that many people were given time off of work while students still had to keep up with the school work during a pandemic, during the riots, during the fear that the nation is all feeling and THE STUDENTS OF THIS NATION ARE EXPECTED TO BE ABLE TO DO SCHOOL WITH NO BREAK. Once again WE PAY YOU! You all need to realize everyone is trying and I get that, but please give us a break at some points like another student suggested random longer weekend breaks. I know you are trying and so far GV has done alright but seriously put yourself back at 21 years old and you already have all this uncertainty in life but are expected to give your best work while all this is going on. I don’t care about going anywhere but we deserve something. Since majority of the time and professors efforts we are teaching ourselves along with every student in the nation.

My daughter is a junior in engineering at GV. Watching the stress that she is enduring is maddening. The worst part is that these kids are paying a great deal of money and are being treated horribly. This “pandemic” is really bringing out the worst in people. Shame on GVSU.
