Prairie View A&M University students have been suffering to keep their heads up in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected us all in different ways. Regardless of the strains that comes with pursuing higher education, we still chose to push through during these hard times.

There is mental stress that we with are unable to talk, work through, or even began to understand because we had to continuously deal with issues like:

- Consistently unstable Wi-Fi and technology for almost a full academic year. Our school servers were down for almost 2 weeks before the snow storm, then went down again around addition week and half because Prairie View A&M University could not provide the students with wifi, again. This semester alone we have been without WIFI for at least 1/3 of our time here. Without WiFi we are unable to “teach ourselves”, even though they have asked us to do it repeatedly. We couldn’t go to tutoring since it’s online, and we couldn’t reach out to professors. The quality of education and overall morale has been completely diminished.


- Administration placing too much stress on our professors. Our professors have been unwilling to drop the missed assignments, homework, or quizzes, causing some classes to fall behind, or for students to simply be burnt out and exhausted.

 

- Lack of proper resources. Prairie View A&M University administration has NOT been answering emails, calls, or our pleas for help and for change. There are students who still hasn’t received their funding for COVID -19 assistance!!!! The school has received millions of dollars to help our students and many of the student body has not received it and are unable to get a response as to why! This is the difference between whether someone can live comfortably and attend school, or have to divert their attention to survival. Prairie Views counseling services have been unreachable for students and from other 3rd party professionals for almost a month and a half. I’ve simply given up calling. And during the semester a professor of mine passed and was giving the number to “the grief counselor” and the number was “out of service”. 


Most of our semester on campus this year has made it extremely 

SOLUTION: 

An immediate fix to the wifi issues that has plagued our campus and the release of funding for our students. We have suffered long enough through situations that were out of our control and some people can’t even graduate because of the unproductive environment that the school has cultivated.

 

Hold Prairie View accountable! 

Students please share your stories if you have one, your voice is important!
