Muhlenberg Students and Parents: Sign Against the 5% Hike!

This petition had 217 supporters

It is outrageous that Muhlenberg should increase our tuition by 5%, especially after having increased it last year. Instead of being a leader among colleges and universities by reducing costs, which schools such as Sewanee University and Seton Hall University have done, Muhlenberg is contributing to the national crisis of college pricing by drastically increasing the cost of attendance. Unfortunately, far too often most of the money from tuition increases goes to administrative expenses, and is not used to benefit the students. Since 1995, the student bodies at colleges and universities in the US have increased by over 50%, while the amount of senior management positions in these institutions has disproportionately gone up by over 150%! So if you think the money's going towards the students, think again. It's going straight to Haas. Tell the Board of Trustees and President Williams that a tuition increase should be rescinded and that the current price should be frozen!
