The dilemma that the International community continuously faces here on campus is truly disheartening. The fact that students who can’t afford to pay their bursar are subjected to deportation is absurd. We are better than this. OU seems to strongly advocate for diversity, inclusivity, and community, yet the actions haven’t shown. With budget cuts to the college as a whole, it’s proving that we are moving away from an inclusive environment. International experiences are vital for knowledge, yet we are slowly discouraging them. OU must do better, and we must fight for our students that we once celebrated in being here. All communities matter.
