The motto behind Agnes Scott College is to “educate others to think deeply, live honorably, and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their times.” Agnes Scott has unfortunately failed their students by falling short of their beliefs. The global pandemic COVID-19 has caused many students to lose loved ones, their homes, sense of safety, and financial security.

Because of the lack of knowledge on the long term effects of the virus, many students have chosen to complete their semester online despite many adversities. Agnes Scott College has ignored the growing concerns from students by stating they still expect every student to pay $43,920 in the midst of chaos...that is not living honorably.

To expect students who have been forced to lose their jobs or witness their family lose their jobs and expect them to not suffer from the inflation of costs to access an education reveals how out of touch the college is with their students. It is simply impossible to justify a price tag of $43,920 when students will not have access to the same resources they would have if they were on campus.

The cost of tuition regardless of if we choose our health/safety over our education is a slap to the face to every student who had to realize that our education will be worth nothing if we’re not alive to put it in use. 

This petition is to hold the administration accountable for their lack of agency in protecting their students as they grapple with a pandemic, the extreme cost of a higher education, and the consequential recession due to the virus. This petition also demands that the President Leocadia Zak amends this issue before students are charged August 1st, 2020.
