Chankasem's Voice


How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
The increased in tuition has left me emotionally and financially distraught. The living expense and cost of attendance that was calculated for Fall 2011 semester was stripped away leaving me to have to seek out various cash resources such as family, friends, and small payday loans. Moreover, I commute from Hayward to San Francisco each morning spending a minimum of $12 dollars per day. I fear this same scenario going into the Spring semester, but with much higher burden.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I am a first year MFA of Cinema production and aspire to teach cinema production at the university level, while pursuing a career in the industry.
