According to the University of Rhode Island, this mandatory $559 fee "covers the cost of the Memorial Union, transportation, Fitness, and Wellness Center, and capital projects. The undergraduate fee supports funds that are distributed to the Student Senate for a wide variety of student programs and activities." However, as on-campus COVID-19 restrictions for the fall semester continue there is no reason that students should be paying for services that they are unable to use.

Currently, fitness facilities may hold capacity and hourly limitations, many students are living and attending class off-campus, and social programs will not be held in person. As this pandemic causes financial instability for most of the students here, if anything, it is essential that this fee must be reduced! 

Thank you.
