How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I am very frustrated with trying to add classes and how my classes are going. I am a third year. It is not the second semester and I have yet to start on my major classes. There is simply no space for all the students who NEED the class. They're not taking it for fun, but the students on the waiting list and the students wanting to add (for the most part) need classes for their major. It was incredibly discouraging when I first added my classes this semester, because I knew I wasn't on track to graduate. The classes I needed were filled, big surprise. I was determined to get classes added for the first week of school, but to see so many people trying to add made my heart drop. I want to be a physical therapist so I even tried to work around this by changing my major from Kinesiology to Biology. Even still, it was no use, I'm unable to get the classes I need with others who are competing for the same review. California needs to put more importance on education
