Taylor O'Gorman started this petition to SUNY Potsdam

SUNY Potsdam has recently moved online due to COVID-19. It’s extremely different from in person classes and I think it’s fair to switch to pass/fails. Many colleges have already switched to this grading system. We are going through a change that we have never seen in this lifetime, many people are in difficult situations at home. Some don’t have internet or it’s very difficult to complete the work given. We are one week in and my grades are already slipping, this is a drastic change and the students deserve pass or fail. This situation is very uncertain and students may be going through unsafe environments of their students' homes, it is likely that their academic performance will be deeply affected. We thank the college for taking our health into consideration and coming up with the solution of online schooling. New York has been a significant state in having majority of the cases, everyone is stressed out and scared, this would relieve stress students have been having. Also, family members have been getting sick and it’s difficult to focus on school work when a loved one is in danger. Online is tremendously different from in person classes, students are having difficulties, including myself, to this change. We ask that SUNY Potsdam listen to their students and help us out by making this change to pass/fail.
