MUN student Kyle Kinsella in MUN’s Education Building.

Kyle Kinsella recently made a post on Facebook on Memorial University of Newfoundland President Vianne Timmons’s office renovations. He asked, “Why don’t we take the next 60k and actually fix the issues ongoing with the campus?” He then stated, “I can definitely do this for under $60k. How many other lecture halls and classrooms are like this? But thank God for that shiny new science building! I’ve had moldy drywall fall on me for 7 straight weeks; maybe we should fix this instead of a refresher for the Queen’s castle, I mean office.”

Brooke King stated, “MUN has been falling apart for so long, there is only so much a bit of tape will do. It is definitely time for some basic renos in these buildings.”

Kyle Kinsella responded to Brooke, stating, “I remember being around 10 years ago with the bys, studying or whatnot, and it was shit then and is shit now.”

Evan Roberts said, “I started MUN in 2012, and I swear the majority of the plastic wrap and garbage are in the exact same place.”

Nicole Patricia said, “Tuition is doubling, but you still get rained on inside — very on brand.”

Robyn Parsons stated that she “literally had something fall on my hand like 2 weeks ago cause there’s like 5 missing ceiling tiles in one of my classes.”

Carrie Collins said, “This is actually ridiculous; she needs to go!!”

Amy Louise stated, “So [the] president of Memorial can get a new swanky office, along with her deliriously high paying job and perks (which she should be using to pay for herself considering any of my friends who are teachers make chicken feed AND have to supply their own classrooms), while the university itself is falling apart and students now have to pay double the tuition to attend.”
