Free health insurance for college students

This petition had 34 supporters

With the many obstacles that come with the transition into college, most students forget that they are required to take care of themselves. That being said, as a freshman at UT Austin I have witnessed just about every single one of my peers get sick enough to the point where they have to go to the doctor. It's an inevitable thing that happens at just about every college you can think of. Since there isn't much students can do about getting sick due to the fact that college campuses, dorms, apartments, etc. are infested with germs, there is something that can be done about healthcare provided. I believe that college students should be rewarded free health insurance because aside from academics, students can't succeed in college without staying healthy. For many students it's difficult enough just to afford tuition, so free health insurance would greatly benefit those students and many others who struggle financially just to receive an education.
