Not many things can bring together the right and left wings in the U.S., but piling on Harvard for charging students $50k/year for online Zoom classes is proving to be a remarkably welcome common ground.
Harvard recently announced they'll allow up to 40% of undergraduate students to live on campus for the upcoming school year, but none of those students will be allowed to attend classes in person.
All classes will be held remotely online, so even the students on campus will just sit inside their dorm rooms all day long.
Of course, students living at Harvard or at home will still pay the same $50,000 annual tuition, a point that most people find reasonably ridiculous.
In the r/Conservative Subreddit, people realized that colleges overcharging students for online classes may be one issue that both Fox News and NPR fans can agree is super shitty.
On Twitter, comedian and ardent Bernie Sanders supporter Stavros Halkias, along with conservative whiner Charlie Kirk (founder of the right-wing organization Turning Point USA), shared the opportunity to crap on Harvard.
Whether the idea of Ivy League universities seems dumb to begin with, or it seems like Harvard is scamming students by charging full price for a degree without any of the perks, people from both ends of the political spectrum can agree Harvard sucks.
So while the election in November is still going to be one big steaming pile, it's nice that we can all join together for a minute to tell the administrators running Harvard they're a bunch of crooks.
