Reduce tuition for Spring Quarter - UCLA ANDERSON

Dear UCLA Anderson Administration, 

In this unfortunate environment, we, the students, regret the current events and hope that everyone in the community is safe which is the most important thing at this time. But, at the same time, we believe there should be a collaboration between the administration and the students to even the burden of the COVID-19 crisis.

One of the fundamental reasons to apply to UCLA Anderson was the intimate class experience and environment that will not, under any circumstances, be of the same quality as we had thus far. Classroom experience, meetings, networking events, person-to-person interactions across professors and students, and club activities, to mention some, are going to be lost. Additionally, now, we are not going to have a commencement ceremony.

We understand that this is unfortunate for the entire UCLA community. However, forcing us to pay full tuition and not sharing the economic burden does not seem fair and does not reflect the share success value of the Anderson school.

Although we strongly commit to these values, we also feel that the faculty and the administration body in this situation are not sharing the losses we are currently facing. Like any other affected industry, airline, hospitality, retail among others, are looking for ways to work with their partners to share the burden in this disadvantageous situation, we hope the Anderson community will do the same. 

Despite the fact we had had an excellent experience for the time being, we believe it's sad to finish our experience this way and won't like to leave with a bitter taste of an amazing institution and community.
