Art Students Demand Tuition Refunds As Classes Go Online

petition launched last week by Rosie Oganesian, a freshman at University of California Irvine, similarly calls for housing and meal plan refunds and tuition reductions. It has since been amended to include public colleges statewide, and has more than 7,000 signatures.
