Shira Jacobs started this petition to Vega Digital Design department

We, as first-year digital design students, attending vega in Johannesburg, feel as though the digital design department at vega, has failed to communicate with the first-year students.

We understand that COVID-19 has affected the whole world in different ways; however, many universities in South Africa, public and private, have been able to communicate effectively. We feel as though we cannot work to our full potential as we are lacking vital information and basic student support.

At the start of 2020, the first-year students were provided with a RN (relationship navigator) and were assured that if we had any issue, the RN would be there to help us. During the first semester, our RN was partially around. We were all frantic and panicking due to the impact of the virus on our schooling, yet, our RN was able to respond to our emails and provided little help. However, even with the RNs help, the students still felt as though there was not enough communication.

At the start of semester two, the digital design first-year students were told that we would be given a different RN, which put our minds at ease until lectures resumed. To our surprise, the communication became worse than before. Many of us began emailing our new RN, requesting important information that we were not given for some unknown reason. The second semester has been chaotic. 

We are all frustrated with the system and are terrified that we are going to fail the year, and it would not be entirely our faults. This is a petition for better communication as we pay an insane amount of money and deserve to know what is going on.
