UC Protests Get Heated in San Francisco (Update)

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 10:31 AM


Update 1 p.m.: Uh-oh, the UC Board of regents just approved the new tuition plan, calling for a 25 percent increase in tuition over the next five years. 



Original Story: Things are getting a bit tense over at the UC Regents meeting in San Francisco where students are holding a protest over proposed tuition hikes. According to KCRA TV in Sacramento, one student has been arrested. 

The morning started out with protesters blocking doors to the meeting, as regents debated whether or not to raise tuition by 5 percent for five years (that's 25 percent). The Chron notes that annual tuition for in-state undergraduates is now $12,192. A 5 percent hike would have students paying $12,804. Additional mandatory fees of more than $1,000 would bring the new annual price tag to the $14,000 range next year.

Meanwhile, regents have been giving some chancellors a 20 percent raise, which has clearly angered students.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
