Dear Colleagues of UAF,
As Covid-19 is on sharp decline in Pakistan and Education ministry has given green signal to institutions to start physical classes, we all were expecting the same from our own university. Previously, we were told to submit the fees as next semester will be on campus.
Furthermore, our education is more of a practical skill than mere theoretical one. Along with books, we need physical experience in order to be able to excel in our fields.
The current decision by University of Agriculture, Faisalabad that the next semester will be conducted online is against the norms and will of the student. We have also been notified that exams will be conducted on campus which makes us feel betrayed.
We have also done expensive covid-19 tests, as per the requirement. Which will soon become void if we don't join the university immediately and most probably will be required to conduct this test again later, leading to financial burden on many of us.
Therefore, I kindly urge you to join me by signing this petition addressed to our Hon Vice Chancellor to commence on campus classes immediately and prevent the wastage of our precious time. Our Academic life has already been severely affected by the one year lockdown for Corona virus and any further delay in calling us back to the campus will have unbearable life long consequences for all of us!
