Tuition hikes have inflated the student tuition term bill by thousands over the past few years. Affording an education at Rutgers University has and is becoming increasingly expensive at the unfair exploitation of the student body.

There are over 50,000 of us tuition-paying students, and we must unite to put an end to these seemingly never-ending tuition increases once and for all.

We must directly and consistently target the Rutgers Board of Governors to make sure our voices make this change!

Through the professional negotitation between the student body, faculty, and the Rutgers decision-makers, only then will the fair voices of the whole will be heard, and lead to a more positive tomorrow for our beloved institution.

      When I was a young girl, I remember being taught that "knowledge is power" and that those who do well in school will go far in life. These days, a very different phrase resonates through the halls of academia.

      One may not really hear it; he or she may have to put his or her ears up against the brick walls, yet it's there. The new phrase, gently echoing against the cool tiles and walls is "money is power."

      These days, it seems I can't turn anywhere without being smacked in face with that phrase.

      It's unfair, and needs to stop

      I enjoyed my Rutgers undergraduate education but now graduate school seems further unattainable due to annual rising costs. Is this how we repay and thank alumni?

      I live in Camden and I attend the Seniors Honors program. Many students cannot afford this increase - I say no tuition increase !!
