Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I was, frankly, shocked to read Cherlynn Clark’s comment in “ULV fills Cal Grant gap” (Oct. 1) that “It upsets me that …the state could have delayed my education.” The last time I looked, the United States is what it is because people do not expect the government to support them.

ULV steps up for students

While the state of California’s legislative branch has been irresponsible and has yet to pass a budget for this fiscal year, the University has been responsible and has decided to pay an advance for the 700 students who rely on the Cal Grant program to attend ULV. The California Student Aid Commission cannot release the Cal Grant awards until a state budget has been passed and signed by the governor. Therefore...
