MSU vet students: We deserve rebates for online classes

Veterinary students at Michigan State University are pleading for a tuition rebate after months of online instruction. The students said they expected a mix of in-person and online courses, but in-person classes were quickly dropped when the fall term began. Lauren Phillip and Breanna Demaline, on behalf of the classes of 2023 and 2024, spoke to MSU trustees, requesting a 30% refund. President Samuel Stanley Jr. says a partial refund isn't practical, noting the university still has fixed costs. Stanley says the change in instruction is "one of the unfortunate casualties of the pandemic."
