DAVIS - A proposal to increase the cost of tuition at University of California schools across the system has been met with fierce opposition from some student groups.
Protestors crowded the UC Davis campus Tuesday afternoon holding signs and voicing outrage over UC President Janet Napolitano's proposal to raise tuition five percent every year for the next five years. Student Senator Mariah Kala Watson insisted costs are already high enough.
"No student should have to work three jobs, take out loans, apply for scholarships, and bankrupt their family," Watson told the crowd of hundreds cheering her.
Much of the message was targeted at the UC Regents who will consider the proposal.
