The college has decided to pass a new policy on financial aid without consulting students, reducing financial aid for students who eat or live in OSCA / have cheaper meal plans / live off campus / etc.

This has huge implications for who is able to attend this school, especially because any savings garnered by working in a coop, eating less CDS meals, and living off campus will be negated by smaller financial aid packages. Many of us worry that we will no longer be able to attend Oberlin because of this. We are unwilling to accept this change. This is just one of the many ways this institution actively hinders its own accessibility and demonstrates its lack of commitment to low income students.
