Students push to make all UNL classes remote

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) -Over 450 signatures from UNL faculty and students have been collected. It’s to urge UNL to make all classes remote.
“So we’re out here because some grad students started a letter to petition the university to send campus classes online immediately,” said Andre Garivay, a senior. “We’re out here to bring visibility to that we really want to show the university that there is genuine support from not only the faculty, staff, students but also the broader Lincoln-Lancaster community.”
The Young Democrats and Socialists Association stood in the union, rallying signatures from the community faculty and students. They say holding classes as cases rise puts the students and community as a whole at risk.
“We don’t want to be responsible for the university staying afloat financially when our lives are at risk, our family members’ lives are at risk, and when our community’s lives are at risk,” adds Garivay.
As of now, the university has announced no changes.
