Rescind the Campus Recreation Membership Fee for Graduate Students

As of Fall 2012, all graduate students at the University at Albany will be charged a gym membership fee of $40 per semester or $120 annually if they use campus recreation facilities. No other members of the campus community are required to pay additional fees to sign up for the use of facilities on their own campus. 

We, the undersigned, oppose the recent imposition of Campus Recreation Membership fees for graduate students and support the efforts of the Graduate Student Employees Union/CWA 1104 to demand the Office of Campus Recreation rescind this membership policy and fee.

Letter to
Director of Campus Recreation Mike Jaromin
Graduate students are members of the campus community with as much right to access to recreation facilities as everyone else who works and studies on our campus.

We, the undersigned, oppose the recent imposition of Campus Recreation Membership fees for graduate students and demand the Office of Campus Recreation rescind this new fee.
