Benjamin Roberts started this petition to Lenoir-Rhyne University

Despite the gross lack of access to campus resources during the Spring and Summer terms of 2020, Lenoir-Rhyne University has continued to charge normal rates for tuition. The on-campus resources to which access has been denied include (but are not limited to) the library, computer labs, science labs, tutoring, the career center, and the on-campus book store. Additionally, a $300 student services fee was charged during the spring 2020 semester. The primary justifications for this fee included free access to sporting events and laundry facilities, none of which were provided during the COVID-19 outbreak. The online experience which we received was far inferior to the private University experience which we were expecting.

In light of the stark contrast between what we paid for and what we actually got, we are requesting a refund for a significant portion of the tuition charged for the Spring and Summer 2020 terms, along with refunds any lab fees and student services fees which may have been accessed. We also urge Lenoir-Rhyne University in the strongest possible terms to refrain from increasing tuition rates during the 2020-2021 academic year. The financial burdens we encountered during the COVID-19 outbreak need not be further compounded by a University which claims that it can "out-care" anybody.
