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.

Editorial Cartoon by Michael Escañuelas If incoming freshmen back in fall 2007 knew that tuition would increase by more than $4,000 once they became seniors, it is likely some would have thought twice before taking the Leo plunge. Granted, if they also knew that the Cal State system would be devastated by financial woes, La Verne would probably have still been their best choice. Regardless, the fact... 

New president, hear our calls
