It’s not always feasible, but when possible, students should consider leaving
Two years into COVID shutdowns, it should be clear that many university officials do not have the best interest of their students in mind.
Yale students who are banned from eating at local restaurants, Fordham attendees who are prohibited from drinking water in the library and all the other enrollees who find themselves imprisoned once again on campus should take a serious look at leaving, at least until the madness ends.
The Wuhan virus has never been a significant concern for almost all college students – the 18-29 age group represents .06 percent of all COVID deaths.
There are other options for students who are done being abused and do not want to do hard time in the isolation cells at their campus.
Many businesses are looking for workers. There are some explanations why. People who have been quadruple-jabbed and wears six masks inside their own house alone are still afraid to return to in-person jobs. I’d bet that a college student could find a local business paying at least $20 to $25 per hour, which is better than paying $30,000 or $40,000 a year for school.
Online learning could still be an option – but could it be done cheaper through a local community college or through an asynchronous schedule or self-paced schedule? What is your goal for going to college? It’s a reflection and thought exercise worth doing.
It won’t work for everyone, unfortunately. Students with one semester left on campus cannot easily transfer colleges, though taking a semester off for an internship and finishing up in the summer could be an option.
Many university officials do not have the best interests of their students at heart.
It’s time to take away their money bit by bit and go somewhere that does not dislike them and wants to actually help them move forward in their life.
