A defense of
During the course of our few
years at Carolina we have seen
increases in the cost of metered
parking on campus, a rise in the
amount of money needed to buy a
hamburger at Lenoir and even the
need for a couple of extra dimes to
purchase a Pepsi.
We often meet these slight
changes in our spending habits
with displeasure and frustration,
and I would expect that tuition
increases, sometimes to the tune
of hundreds of dollars, also would
be wildly unpopular.
Your University’s Board of
Trustees will be meeting today to
determine how much tuition will
increase for the 2006-07 aca
demic year. The board undoubt
edly will recommend an increase,
and I, as an ex-officio trustee, will
support that decision.
If you will read on, I will explain
why I reached this conclusion.
