USG Introduces Resolution on College Tuition

In an effort to increase transparency and lower tuition costs, members of USG introduced a resolution on college affordability last night. From the Daily Trojan:

“The resolution presentation began with the results of a college affordability survey conducted a few months ago. The results gathered 1,903 responses over a period of three weeks and showed considerable majorities.

Eighty-four percent of respondents believed that a tuition freeze would alleviate the financial burden for students. Seventy-six percent knew of someone who had transferred from or considered taking a leave of absence from USC due to high tuition costs. Ninety-eight percent did not know the reason for the 2015-2016 $2,000 tuition increase. Ninety-three percent did not know where their tuition dollars went.”

Wonder where tuition dollars are going? Probably not where you think.
