Petition for Reliable Internet at Pfeiffer
Two years ago, Pfeiffer University elected to provide wireless internet in the residence halls. Upon doing this, the hard-wired ethernet ports were turned off. A limited number can be turned on, but only by special requests of students that have desktop computers or computers that do not have wireless capabilities.
This wireless internet is sub-par. In many dorm rooms on campus, the internet reception is weak. In all rooms, the internet is unreliable, making it hard for students to do online assignments and research. Unreliable internet is also a problem for students taking tests and quizzes for online classes.
Every year, the students of Pfeiffer University pay $125+ as a "technology fee" that is supposed to be used to provide technology to the students of Pfeiffer University.
By signing this petition, you are stating that you agree with the above statements, feel that Pfeiffer University has a responsibility to provide its students with reliable internet service, and refuse to pay the 2011-2012 technology fee until the internet has been made reliable.
