“for student’s physical and emotional health needs”
These students don’t seem to realize their demands are contributing to the financial demise of their school.

Students demand cash-strapped college spend more on diversity
The student government at Limestone College is demanding longer Health Center hours and the hiring of more “faculty members of color,” but doesn’t want current students to foot the bill.
“We, students of Limestone College, experience marginalization by this institution through manifestations of athletic supremacy, in the form of unfair medical or reasonable treatment for student’s physical and emotional health needs,” begins a letter sent to President Walt Griffin and his Cabinet by the Limestone Student Government Association (SGA).
The claim appears to be directed at Limestone’s large athletic population, which Limestone Director of Communications Charles Wyatt told Campus Reform represents approximately 70 percent of the student body.
In addition to longer hours, the SGA is also demanding “a staffing increase for the Health Center,” the implementation of a plan “to grandfather the tuition for sophomores, juniors, and seniors,” and “that diversity be properly reflected in Limestone’s faculty and curriculum.”
Specifically, the letter calls on Limestone to “hire more faculty and staff members of color and other diverse backgrounds in each department,” specifying that “students of color” should have input on the hiring process.
