UC Students Face 8% Fee Hike

Updated: To listen to the 15 November 2010 show, click here: .

As University of California Regents move later this week to raise student fees by 8% and admit more out-of-state and international students, UC students are reacting with frustration. UCI Student Regent Jesse Cheng has already indicated he will vote against the increase.

We talk with two graduate student activists, Fernando Chirino (Sociology) and Robert Wood (Comparative Literature), about what students plan to do in response. Last year UC Regents already raised fees by a third.

The two activists appear on KUCI's Subversity, airing from 5-6 p.m. today, 15 November, 2010, on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County, California, and simulcast via Today's show will end early, around 5:45 p,m., to allow pre-game broadcast of basketball that formally begins at 6 p.m.
