UA asking for 3 percent hike; tuition more than doubled in 6 years

The University of Arizona is seeking a 3 percent bump in tuition, plus an $80 increase in library fees, to make up for state budget cuts. In-state undergraduate tuition would be $10,391, more than double the rate in 2007.

One side of the political aisle will say the AZ Legislature members are devils for cutting funding…and I agree…BUT…the state universities have gotten way, WAY too fat and happy with their political agenda degrees and boutique degrees…someone needs to be an adult and rein BOTH IN…the colleges need to cut the fluff stuff, then the Legislature needs to help the next generation of middle class workers get a good start in life without taking out a loan equivalent to buying a house.

Wow…..Great post. ^^^ I agree with every word.

Generations past used to have people working their way through college. With tuition rates these days, I think it is literally impossible to go to college, study and do homework, get enough rest, and still fit in a job that would hire a college student and pay him enough and give him enough hours to cover his living and tuition expenses. When this was possible, we were OK, better even. The planet didn’t blow up and babies didn’t die from it or anything like that. We need to return to a system that makes this possible.
