Backlash Over Virus at SUNY College: ‘Learn From Your Fall 2020 Mistakes!’

Monday, for the first time since August, the school, the State University of New York at Oneonta, will host in-person classes, after weeks of backlash from some students, parents and faculty members who felt there had not been enough consensus about the reopening plan.

When the upstate New York campus that had the worst coronavirus outbreak of any public college in the state announced it would reopen for the spring semester, a petition started in protest and accumulated more than 700 signatures.

“Learn from your Fall 2020 mistakes!” wrote an alumna who signed the petition.

“I am tired of feeling like this school just consumes me continually. I cannot wait to retire,” wrote one anonymous faculty member.

“Because of your actions this past year, I haven’t been able to see my only child for a year,” another anonymous poster wrote. “I am going through chemo alone because she works in an unsafe environment and cannot risk killing me.”
