BGSU students to see $212 increase in tuition

BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Bowling Green State University officials are predicting a $3 million decrease in state funding; that's their reasoning for increasing tuition.
     
Full-time, in-state undergrads will see roughly a $212 increase in fees and tuition next school year. Students say they will have to apply for more loans.

"Everyone needs to have an education to get a good job and this is just making it harder on everyone," said BG student Jordan Thomspon. 

"The fact is tuition is already hard enough to pay," said BG student JD Caudill.

Caudill will be entering his fifth year at BGSU. He says it's hard enough for his family to make ends meet; this adds more stress to the school year.

"My question is where is my money going?" said Caudill. "Because I don't see it going into the academic programs I see it going into these outrageous new buildings that I don't think we need."

In addition to the tuition hike, board members approved around $11 million in renovations and future demolition projects.

"It's very frustrating," said Caudill. "Tuition is being raised but I don't believe it's going towards my academics."

A BGSU spokesperson says these increases are necessary. Without them, the spokesperson say the university would not be able to provide a high level of education and services for students.

It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
