Mall Rants: April 13

Mall Rants is a regular feature in the Daily Wildcat, in which students weigh in on current events and issues. This week, columnist Caroline Nachazel asked students about the upcoming tuition hikes.

“”Well, I understand that we need money but it just sucks for everyone. We are already poor enough. I am in-state, which is not fair. I guess the out-of-state pays enough already. We’re in-state, we should get a little bit of slack.””

— Ashlee Espensen, freshman studying molecular and cellular biology

“”I’m out-of-state, so I am already paying a lot of money. So, like, it kind of sucks to pay more money with what I’m already paying right now.””

— Chris Kang, accounting sophomore

“”It’s awful. I mean I’ve got another year here so trying to figure paying that off while my little sister is coming in with my parents is not exactly the best news in the world, but it’s something we’ll deal with to finish off school, I guess.””

— Jessica Cooper, journalism senior

“”I know nothing about the tuition increase, honestly. I’ve kind of heard about it, but I’m not really concerned.””

— Amanda Pursel, elementary education freshman

“”It doesn’t help me out because I have to pay a lot more, and I have to pay for my college funds, expenses. I’m out-of-state, so I am paying like $30,000 or something crazy.””

— Kyle Zimmerman, business freshman

“”It sucks. I’m out-of-state. And I don’t know — I just think it sucks.””

— Conrad Bongo, communication sophomore
