Macquarie Students say NO! to crowded classrooms and excessive over enrollment

Sat in an aisle lately? Been unable to enroll in a compulsory tutorial or lecture? Classes are SO big that the tutor doesn't even know your name by the end of the semester?! NOT GOOD ENOUGH!! Our Education should be the top priority of our university. Students first, profits second. This year Macquarie enrolled between a large number extra students than there are places available for optimal learning. This is ridiculous and it disadvantages all students who want a quality education. We are already paying more for less with the curriculum change. 3 credit point subjects are the same price as their 4 credit precursors, resulting in an extra 25% fee for all students despite less contact hours and student to staff ratios. NOT GOOD ENOUGH! So sign the petition to have your voice heard!
