“Not great, I take out loans to pay for my college, so that just adds on top of it, and I don’t really see the point. I guess they’re not really telling us where that money is going so that’s kind of annoying.”

“Honestly, kind of sucks. Can’t sugar coat that. Because I pay my own college tuition, and I don’t know how much further FAFSA is going to go. It’s a little tough.”

ADAM KERR

Mechanical Engineering

“I think they should be accounting for the cost, but, it doesn’t feel like that big of a change.”

ASHTYN PARKS

“I do not appreciate that I have to pay eight dollars more (per credit).”

JACK CHAPMAN

Accounting

“Eight dollars (per credit) might not seem like a lot but when you’re taking that many credits it definitely adds up.”

RILEY WHITE

Biology

“I’m actually kind of shocked because here we pay for a lot of things and don’t necessarily get the most out of our money and so I feel like our tuition should be going down, not up.”

MYLES WILLIS

Mechanical Engineering

“I mean, that’s probably about what inflation is, maybe a little bit more, so, really not too bad.”

KATLYN NAGAOKA

Design and Innovation

“Honestly college is expensive as it is, it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, but I don’t appreciate it.”

DRAKE GROSS

“It’s such an insignificant amount of money I don’t think anyone’s really going to care that much.”

JACOB STEWART

Chemical Engineering

“Yeah, I don’t feel very good about it. Especially, it’ll add up quite a lot. They’re doing away with pro school for undergraduate engineers but that’s a similar rate just for that too.”

MARILYN AUSTIN

Management

“Not good, I mean I’m out of state so I already pay a ton.”
