This is cruelty, plain and simple. It’s astounding that any tuition paying parents would put up with it.

Build Your Own Wifi: Quinnipiac University To Cut Off Unvaccinated Students From Internet
Quinnipiac University plans to fine unvaccinated students and to restrict their WiFi this upcoming fall, the school announced Monday in an internal letter.
“Our goal is to protect the health of our entire university community,” the Hamden, Connecticut, school of about 10,000 wrote to students who are unvaccinated. “In order to accomplish this we must know if you have been vaccinated.”
About 600 students have yet to get vaccinated. The deadline is September 14. If students do not adequately “upload” their status, they might get hit with an imposed fine as high as $2,275 each semester.
For the first two weeks of the term, the fine will be $100 per week, which will increase by $25 every two weeks. Likewise, any student who does not participate in “weekly, on-campus testing” will receive a $100 fine. All unvaccinated students will not be able to access the school’s WiFi.
“Access to the Quinnipiac network and Wi-Fi system will be revoked if a student has not fulfilled the vaccination requirement by Sept. 14,” noted a local news outlet. “Fees and penalties will be waived for students who have received one dose of a two-dose vaccine if the second dose is completed by Sept. 14.”
