Students Set to Protest CSU Chancellor's Office
Students will be right there with them--not to cheer on the board but to hold wingtips to the fire, loudly protesting against tuition hikes and enrollment cuts that will be on the table.

The CSU does plan to ask the state Legislature for help in bringing down the 10 percent charge, but that's like squeezing blood out of a shriveled up turnip.
Cue the Southern California chapters of Students Quality Education (SQE).
"We're putting together a protest demonstration right outside the Chancellor's office in Long Beach," 21-year-old Daniel Santana tells Delgadillo. ". . . We (are) just trying to build more awareness and pressure them to take the students needs into account."
Without a state budget, there should be nothing for the CSU board to cut/hike, the SQE maintains.
If the worst happens, one student tells the reporter she will consider going to a community college instead of the CSU. Others who are closer to graduating concede they will have to scramble for grants and scholarships once their budgeted tuition runs out.
