After attending one of Penland's summer sessions, I am completely appalled by their operational staff. I claimed a physical limitation on my work study application, stating that I could only participate with a sedentary office position. They accepted my application, my work study contract and my payment without any indication that there would be a problem. The day before I am supposed to arrive I receive a call from a belligerent work-study coordinator saying that it is impossible to offer any accommodations, and they refuse to honor the contract that offered me a work study with an office position. Because this was my vacation that my whole year had been planned around, not to mention about a year of savings, I let myself be coerced into attempting the kitchen job they wanted to assign me. The labor enraged my chronic health problems, by the 4th day of a 14 day session, I had collapsed in a fever unable to participate in class. Rather than expressing any kind of regret or responsibility for neglecting the contract and instigating this health crisis (that took me 6 weeks to recover from) Fenland staff told me that they were removing me from campus with out refund on the grounds that getting sick is a disruptive behavior, and interferes with other student's learning. ATTEND ANY OTHER CRAFT SCHOOL!!!! JUST NOT THIS ONE!!!!
