As of late, there have been many articles and editorials regarding the financial crisis and its impact on students. I appreciate the opinion offered by the Daily in its recent editorial (Unreasonable costs, 03/02/2009) that urged the University not to pass the baton of fiscal responsibility onto the students once more.
As an out-of-state student, I knew what I was facing financially when I made the decision to come to the University. But I also know that I — and the student body as a whole — cannot and should not have to bear the burden of another huge tuition increase to maintain the University’s bottom line.
If Provost Teresa Sullivan is reading this: I love this school. I love this town. I came to Michigan for a reason. Please don’t make me go back home because the University can’t or won’t get creative with its budget.
