Melinda Robrahn started this petition to Cardinal Card Office University of Louisville

During COVID-19 a lot of things have changed, many classes are moving online or to hybrid models that reduce the amount of time that we have to spend on campus: Many classes are labeled "hybrid" even though a full class cannot meet at the same time due to the inability to properly socially distance in a full classroom - Many of us won't even need to be on campus to even take an exam!

When a class is "hybrid" and not "online" this is a linguistic loophole that has allowed the university to count these credit hours as "on campus" allowing them to charge us for a meal plan we would have otherwise been exempted from. Furthermore, the meal plan waiver form that you will be directed to does not give students the option of opting out due to a students reduced time on campus due to COVID-19 based circumstances.

Due to our reduced time on campus the tiered meal plan model that is automatically charged to student accounts is looking more and more like a money grubbing scheme on behalf of the university than an effective plan to keep students fed in between classes.

Please sign our petition to pressure the university to allow students to reduce or opt out of a full meal plan during these unprecedented times.
