Sheena 's Voice


How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
I decided to pay for my tuition from out of pocket expenses for the 2011-2012 school year. With the increase, I am now forced to take out student loans to cover my tuition for my remaining three semesters. I have to take a class in Summer 2012 and have no idea how I am going to pay that. This is making it harder to me to continue with my education. Higher Education should be a focus for state government, not a bargaining chip in the budget discussions.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
After graduation, I want to work for local government or non-profit organization focusing on education reform.
