UK Students Have Chance To Talk With President About Budget Cuts

University of Kentucky students will have a chance Monday night to talk with President Lee Todd face to face.

Organizers expect the meeting to focus on what state budget cuts could mean for tuition.

President Todd has said tuition could go up substantially to offset expected budget cuts.

Jobs would also have to be cut.

The forum begins at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Cat's Den inside the student center.

    Well, I hope you young kiddies have your eyes and ears open because you are about to experience: 1. Telling you what you want to hear. 2. The UK shuffle, (everything is based on UK's drive to achieve Top 20 Status) 3. It is all the Politicians fault up in Frankfort. Nothing will change, your tuition will increase year after year while your classrooms fall into disrepair and your Dorms are closed for being "Antiquated". Let alone no campus parking because of all the new research buildings as well as State of the Art Athletic Facilities. What a bunch of chumps!

    Here's the gist for those that can't make it: Kentucky is out of money. We need more money for our dumb projects that ignore the needs of Kentucky students. Students will have to pay more tuition to subsidize our money lust. The END

    I heard a report on WUKY 91.3 yesterday about a program at UK to teach folks how to be better at marriage and relationships. This program is paid for by a grant that derives it's money from your tax dollars. How about cutting out some of these frivolous and wussy-fied programs at the university level and save a ton of money. I just don't care about research into how to make safer cigarettes or the effects of horse urine in ground water either.
