CSU TRUSTEES POSTPONE TUITION HIKES
Arcata, Ca- The California State University Board of Trustees’ has decided to postpone a set of proposed fee hikes.At Governor Jerry Browns request the CSU Trustees have decided to postpone the tuition hikes until they can explore other options. According to state documents over the last ten years, tuition at the CSU system has tripled as State funding has been reduced; making it harder for CSU students to not only pay for classes but books and living expenses. We spoke to some students at Humboldt State University who felt that the decision to postpone the meeting showed them that the CSU trustees’ have their best interest. They were also relieved to hear that at least for now their tuition will remain untouched. Student Kurt Derow told us, "I mean not many people can afford the hikes. Some people are actually forced to drop out of college for it and I don't think this country can afford that. We need as many educated peoples for our future as we can get." Student Rachel Lee added, "Yea relieved. And now that I’ll have some extra money to pay my bills."The CSU Board of Trustees’ have not scheduled another meeting but said they will meet after they gather additional information and input from stakeholders.
