Around a dozen protesters refused to leave the UC Davis administration building Tuesday night, a day before the UC Regents consider a controversial tuition hike.
The students plan to spend the night in the lobby of Mrak Hall.
"It's largely symbolic that we're willing to occupy a space and claim our university back for ourselves," 5th year student Kabir Kapur said.
Kapur is one of many students who will head to the UC Regents meeting Wednesday morning in Mission Bay. The Regents will consider a proposal to raise tuition by five percent every year for the next five years.
"One of the main goals is to postpone the vote till January, till after the governor releases his budget," Kapur said.
But will buying more time open up the necessary cash flow to prevent a rise in tuition? Some students seemed doubtful.
