It’s been almost two months since the Board of Trustees approved a 15.6 percent tuition hike to the dismay of dozens of student protesters lining the walls of the Carolina Inn.
But since then, the fiery student opposition hasn’t cooled.
Students concerned with the rising cost to attend UNC will meet in the Pit this morning to march to the General Administration building, where the UNC-system Board of Governors will be discussing tuition increases.
MARCH TO THE MEETING
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Location: The Pit
“This continues to be something that’s on students’ minds,” said Ben Elkind, executive board member of the Campus Y, which is helping to organize the march.
“This is a wider array of students than it was before the break. We still totally care and have recognized — even after Christmas and Hanukkah — that this is really about the character of our University,” he said.
