UCalgary SU receives complaints over courses moved online

August 31, 2021
The University of Calgary’s student union has received an “unprecedented” number of complaints after around 10% of its classes were moved online. CBC reports that UCalgary professors were recently allowed to make decisions about moving their courses online, and the number of online courses is continuing to increase. Students who travelled to Calgary to attend school are upset that they will be missing out on the in-person aspects of their schooling while they pay for travel and housing. “I already bought my parking pass,” explained UCalgary student Orianne Aviv. “I already went back-to-school shopping. ... [W]hen I found out it was online, I cried all day about it.” The student union has said that it was not consulted before the decision was made. UCalgary SU | CTV News | CBC | Calgary Herald (AB)
