the bear bus was so helpful to me my first two years living on campus, as I don't have a car or driver's license. And there are so many important things I stand for on this petition as well.

Last year, I applied to Nightwatch for this current year with the knowledge that Nightwatch paid for student housing. Once being offered the position, that benefit was removed and was changed to $10/hour. In previous years, there were two people working in a Nightwatch station, so if somebody needed to go and deal with a problem or needed to take a bathroom break, that was possible. This year, to cut back, they've replaced the second Nightwatch attendant with a "floater", who covers all the buildings for the night who you can call to come take over for a few minutes should you need a bathroom break. Some nights, there is no floater scheduled, leaving you for five hours by yourself with no breaks, because you can't leave the station, even for a moment. This all culminated in the university removing the position at the last second, offering a 10 hour maximum desk job as a replacement.

Students in the work force should be eliminated and kept with the benefits they have to have!

RAs and APMs are very important and work extremely hard, they deserve their full benefits. And nightwatch is part of the reason OU has the safest campus in the state, they should not be eliminated

I am a NW employee who feels extremely left in the dark and frustrated with the way housing has treated us during the pandemic. We were left alone without any relief on many nights and expected to complete tasks and stay up to par while being paid insignificant amount.

I’m signing this petition because budget cuts meant I couldn’t keep my job as an APM and still afford to live on campus, so I had to quit and move off.

They're doing all of this but not reducing housing prices. It's gross. This is my third year as an APM and being an APM has been a huge part of my college career. This year has felt empty with the few apms who still remain on campus. I'm the only apm in my entire residence hall, And the only on campus apm who is not on a special interest floor in hamlin. This is a job through housing and there is no housing left for us. Nightwatch is the reason why we're ranked as one of the safest campuses in the country. It's gross the lack of concern oakland university housing has for their students.
