Having gone through university, most of us would be able to relate to the stress of having to complete multiple assignments on time and the never-ending homework. However, is there a channel for you if you were to complain about a lecturer?
Recently, a university student spend some time writing a note to his lecturer and posted it on his office door to ensure that the student’s grievances are taken seriously.
The note later found its way to social media and it is believed that the student is expressing his disappointment with the country’s education system involving institutions of higher learning (IPT).
In the note, the student claimed that many fellow students had become depressed and some were even acting beyond expectations because they were burdened with the assignments given.
“On the wrong day of the month, some people commit suicide because of you. Do you want to feel guilty for life?” the note reads.
Apart from the endless assignments, the student also described the workload given as excessive and too much to complete.
“Assignment again, test again, presentation again! Telling us to do reports as if we are fools! We are not robots!” he said.
Meanwhile, the Facebook post about the note went viral and has since sparked a huge debate among netizens, with some claiming that students these days are too spoiled, while others acknowledge that university can be confusing and challenging.
“Wait till you enter working life. Do you think your boss will care about you being stressed?” a netizen commented.
“Please, don’t overlook this issue. We should not compare what we are facing in the past with what students now face. We have to take note of this as depression cases are increasing,” another netizen commented.
Nonetheless, some netizens said that students are entitled to voice out but they should do it respectfully.
Some also shared advice on how to take care of oneself, balance study and fun, and make it through the three or four years of university in one piece.
