Members of the Graduate Student Employees Union (GSEU) led a march from the Earth and Space Sciences building to the Administration building on Wednesday, May 1 to deliver a list of demands following the university’s proposed hike in fees.
At an Undergraduate Student Government (USG) Senate meeting on Thursday, March 14, Dean of Students, Richard Gatteau, said the university is proposing to raise fees from $1,377.25 a semester to $1,503.90.
Jonathan Brophy, an undergraduate psychology major, stood in the Student Activities Center Plaza gripping a hand-made sign against the wind. The sign illustrated a sea of blue guppies, eating a slightly smaller fish wearing a crown. Brophy held it high above his head while he chanted with the crowd, “Education is a right. Fight, fight, fight, fight!”
