Make UW-Madison classes pass/fail

Just like last semester, we as students have faced many challenges attending school during the pandemic. Taking classes from home is incredibly difficult. With the stress of the pandemic and the move online this semester, it is important for University of Wisconsin-Madison to support its undergraduate students however they can. 

Taking classes online, many students find themselves learning the material in their courses essentially alone. We face a semester with no study groups to support us and many of us without the social connections we rely on for our mental health. I have found it more difficult to keep up with lectures and work than ever before. 

This is a kindness we can all benefit from, and one that the University of Wisconsin-Madison can easily provide. To protect the mental health of students, please give students the option to make their classes pass/fail, similarly to how it was an option this past Spring. Thank you.
