Ryan's Voice


How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
My parent's can't support me because they can hardly support themselves. It kills my mom to see me overwhelmed with work and school full time, struggling to receive an education because tuition is biting me in the ass. I shouldn't struggle for education. I shouldn't be having to pull out tons of loans to pay for something that should be widely promoted/encouraged as well as accessible to the public. young college kids, believe it or not, are the future. you strip away their pride now, you will weaken their motive and motivation--


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
At the moment studying Business, hoping to continue to focus on either Management or Finance. Once I graduate (hopefully not in like 20 years, because DAMN there is no type of seating available in some of my classes. Try taking a 3 hour class STANDING UP HAVING TO TAKE NOTES. TRY IT, PLEASE GOVERNOR.THIS IS A RESULT OF YOUR BUDGET CUTS), I would like to either open my own business which has not yet been decided, and be able to support my family back in Sacramento. I hope this will be attainable through my studies at San Francisco State University, that is, if I can afford to even go to school here later on. That is all
