Mark's Voice


How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
I work a full-time job and attend graduate school part-time. I sometimes take only 3 units (1 class) due to time constraints. This means that any time fees increase, the amount I have to pay increases significantly even if I am not taking any additional units. Also, taking part-time classes means it takes longer to graduate, so I have to pay to be at SFSU longer.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I am working on completing a Master's Degree in English Composition, hopefully to teach writing at community colleges in California.
