SAC Change started this petition to Saint Anselm College

This petition is in regard to the housing options available for the Seniors at Saint Anselm College in the Class of 2020. A recent email indicated that Father Bernard Court, the townhouses that are notoriously and historically known as housing for senior students is now being opened up to both Juniors and Seniors that are willing to force 5 students into these spaces that were originally built to house 4 students.

Tradition is an important aspect of Benedictine life that has been exemplified to the students at Saint Anselm College through and through. The students of the Class of 2020 have in turn come to understand the importance of tradition in our own lives. We ask that that the traditions of Father Bernard Court be allowed to continue for us, as they have for all of the students that have come before.

While it is understandable that Senior class members who are willing to force 5 students into these townhouses may take priority over the typical group of 4 senior class mates, it seems completely unfair to now change the dynamic of this area on campus by giving an advantage to underclassmen over seniors.

This past year was already difficult for the class of 2020, as class members were spread around campus due to over-enrollment and lack of junior housing. But, to now have the opportunity to come together for one last year on the hilltop (as all other senior classes before us have) taken away from us is simply not right.

The senior class of 2020 deserves to have the same opportunity to enjoy the Father Bernard Court community as the senior classes in past years.

Thank you.
