Concered Student started this petition to Huntingdon College

Huntingdon College has decided to add a new ‘commuter fee’ of $1,000 per academic year despite their promise of a fixed tuition for all students. This fee includes security, parking, access to the commuter lounge and a meal plan. These features have always been included in all student tuition, and all students are able to use them. Meal plans have never been required and they are now forcing us to pay for one while the dining hall does not have options for people with dietary restrictions. One of the perks of Huntingdon was their previously mentioned ‘fixed tuition.’ While yes, this fee is not considered tuition the faculty of Huntingdon have always held that pricing will not change for currently enrolled students. Most commuters are residents of Montgomery, adults with families and people who simply can not afford to live in on campus housing. $1,000 can make or break someone’s finances and for what? Services we have always had, access to a room no one uses, and a meal plan that no one asked for. If this fee is absolutely necessary for the success of our college then do what they must. But, hold off on this fee for the upcoming new students instead of springing it onto your loyal student body who you promised ‘fixed tuition” to.
