A number of graduate assistants and graduate fellows at Michigan State University claim they are experiencing a lack of healthcare, pay and safety at the start of the 2021 fall semester.
Michigan State University hosted a series of special, in-person commencements for these now-alumni on Sep. 17 to Sep. 19. The graduates had originally received a virtual commencement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The number of students living in residence halls jumped from 3,000 to 15,000 from the 2020-21 school year to the 2021-22 school year and RHS staff is struggling to keep up.
Leadership at the university claim that it's not the size of the class that’s bringing the most challenges — but new developments in how students operate as a whole.
MSU Deputy Spokesperson Dan Olsen said that modality change requests are judged and decided by the leadership of the class’s respective department.
