“My name is Brittany and I’m currently doing an undergraduate degree at MUN majoring in Gender Studies. I came to MUN because it was the only opportunity I had to get an education I could afford. I’ve been a student here for 6 years now because, although I’ve worked while in school, there’s been times when I’ve needed to take several semesters off and move home because I couldn’t afford to stay in the city, pay rent, buy food, and also cover the cost of tuition. A fee increase would likely create a situation where I’ll need to do this again.”
