Chapel Hill is one step closer to raising student tuition. Wednesday, the Board of Trustees’ Budget, Finance, and Audit Committee voted to recommend a tuition increase to the full board on Thursday.
But the vote didn’t come without some opposition from students. Dozens of Carolina students marched to the committee meeting chanting, “Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Tuition hikes have got to go!”
The protesters worry the proposed $800 tuition increase for in-state students will keep a lot of people from being able to afford a Carolina education.
