This Tuesday, California Senate Democrats proposed a bill to increase the University of California's nonresident supplemental tuition by 17 percent while keeping in-state tuition flat in 2015-2016. The proposal, which aims to keep UC education affordable for residents, came after the UC Board of Regents' vote last month to increase tuition up to 5 percent each year over the next five years. Are you in favor of the Democrats' proposal?
  • No, it unfairly puts more financial burden on out-of-state and international students and their families. (45%, 111 Votes)
  • Yes, but despite short-term benefits, the proposal does not address core funding issues at the UC. (29%, 70 Votes)
  • Yes, it will give California residents more opportunities to receive a college education. (21%, 52 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (5%, 11 Votes)

On Nov. 24 UCLA students marched around campus in protest of a grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson Mo. The protesters entered Bruin Plate and were greeted by boos and jeers from students eating in the dining hall. How do you feel about this matter?
  • The protesters should not have entered the dining hall in the first place; it is not a public space and the protest only made things difficult for employees working and students trying to eat. (50%, 312 Votes)
  • The students who booed were insensitive and disrespectful, betraying a lack of concern for national issues and for other students. (26%, 163 Votes)
  • While the protesters should not have disrupted dinner in the dining hall, students should have been more respectful of their decision to do so. (21%, 130 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (3%, 18 Votes)

The UCLA Office of Environmental, Health and Safety investigated the reports of the bugs, but said they found no serious health concerns in the dining halls where the bugs were found.

  • The reports of bugs need to be taken more seriously by UCLA. The reports have severely impacted where I choose to eat at UCLA. (53%, 133 Votes)

  • The reports did not impact my dining choices at all. (12%, 29 Votes)

  • Yes, the increase is necessary to cover rising costs and increase enrollment of California residents. (11%, 123 Votes)
  • Yes, but the UC should have been more transparent in informing students about the increase. (7%, 76 Votes)
