To the Students of The University of North Georgia,
As many of you have read from University of North Georgia President, Bonita Jacobs, the school is increasing our athletic fee by $34.00 a semester for students at the Dahlonega campus. As noted in the email sent to students, she states that the fee will, "enable us to increase scholarship availability for student-athletes." Many of you have expressed your concerns over this extra fee on top of the recent USG tuition increase of 5% as well as other fee increases such as the transportation fee. One of the biggest concerns that many students have with this is the fact that why are we paying for scholarships for student athletes, on top of what we already have to pay for ourselves. It's completely unfair and it needs to come to a halt.
The point I'm trying to make is that we the students, have a voice and it needs to be heard. We as students fund a major portion of the school and we should be expressing our opinions. Please sign this position in hopes of getting rid of the increase in the athletic fee.
