West Chester University is forcing us Golden Rams to continue attending an online school, despite the fact that multiple other universities in the state are still open, such as Villanova, Shippensburg, Drexel, Penn State, Duquesne, Pitt, and much more. Furthermore, the current freshman class has already had their year destroyed, since high school was cut short as well as the freshman experience. This is not involving parties, as there are plenty of students that could care less about them. Also, consider the fact that mental health has rapidly deteriorated for students, as students like me have had to face the reality of missing out on several opportunities, missing out on making new friends at the campus, and also getting to know the campus much easier. When you consider the fact that the school had plenty of time to try and obtain any sort of testing equipment or any sort of method to see if students have COVID-19, it's almost laughable how they claim that they didn't have any solution. The survival rate of COVID-19 is well above 95%, and it is mainly a threat towards elders, not the youth. Also when you consider that schools such as West Virginia University have high amounts of COVID-19 cases, but are still on campus and online, I don't see how West Chester University can't do the same. It is also very easy to mix up the flu and COVID-19, and I think it is unfair to automatically assume a person that is sick has COVID-19. I ask that West Chester University rethinks their decision, and give us students the chance to return.
