UC Regents Approved 32% increase

As a UCLA student, I’m pretty mad that they have to increase tuition 32% by next year. Currently tuition is a little less than $3,000/quarter making it to about $9,000/year. By next year tuition will be about $11,000-$12,000/year. The fact that the economy is doing bad with the rise of unemployment of 10.2% in California and budget cuts, this is pretty bad. The state is not making good decision, increasing our deficit.

The UC Regents came to UCLA for their meeting about this budget increase. Students from all over the UC systems came over to protest against this, unfortunetely it didn’t stop them.

Los Angeles Times has some pretty interest pictures of the protest. It was a two days event. Click Here
