Tag: room rental fees
I am a Student Union Senator who voted for the recent resolution against Residential Life’s new room rental fees. I would like to offer my reasoning for the way I voted as well as respond to my fellow senator, Joseph Marcus, who does not support the resolution. He argues that SU should not attack the eight students that work as Event Assistants in exchange for free housing, and that these fees only follow the trend of other departments that have compensated for smaller budgets by passing on some cost to students. He states that unlike printing and transcripts costs, which actually require spending more money, the room rental fees only change how the Student Activities Fee, money we already spend, is allocated.
