How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
Increasing tuition fees each year is impacting my present and future. I am a 56 year old continuing my education in social work. The constant increases of tuition are impacting me because I cannot afford a decent place to live, cannot afford health care, shop at thrift stores for my clothing and decide what my food options will be so that I do not go over my budget. There has to be another way to not increase my tuition again. I have my highest confidence that you will be able to stop the 9% increase.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I am studying Social Work, BASW program and I am applying for the MSW program.


Francine W., 56 San Francisco
