How much faith do you have in the UC's ability to effectively deal with the financial situation it is in while maintaining a quality education for all students?
  • None at all. I am concerned that UC administrators do not have students' best interests at heart. (32%, 56 Votes)
  • Some faith. I am certain that administrators are trying, but they could do more. (24%, 42 Votes)
  • Very little. Their decision to raise tuition for students shows their lack of support. (20%, 35 Votes)
  • A lot. The UC is in a dire situation and they're doing the best that they can. (13%, 23 Votes)
  • Full support. The UC is doing everything it can and students should show more support. (11%, 19 Votes)

What is your reaction to the UC's proposal to raise fees again for the following academic year?
  • The idea of new fee hikes is despicable and lowers my opinion of the UC system. (38%, 60 Votes)
  • The state does not have enough money for the UC's, so students must fill the gap. (23%, 37 Votes)
  • Fee hikes might be necessary because the UC schools have no other way to raise funding. (16%, 25 Votes)
  • The state has enough money to fund the UC's and students should not have to pay higher fees. (14%, 22 Votes)
  • I may have to drop out of the UC system because I can not afford higher tuition. (9%, 14 Votes)

How would you rate your involvement in the election season this year?

  • Not informed because I am disillusioned with politics (15%, 17 Votes)
  • Not informed because politics does not interest me (14%, 16 Votes)

Do undocumented students deserve to pay in-state fees at UCLA?
  • Yes, if they attended a California high school for 3 or more years and graduated from high school (32%, 196 Votes)
  • No, undocumented students should not even be able to attend a public university like UCLA (31%, 190 Votes)
  • No, undocumented students should pay out-of-state fees even if they have lived in California (19%, 116 Votes)
  • Of course, undocumented students deserve a UCLA education as much as any Californian (14%, 86 Votes)
  • Yes, charging these students out-of-state fees would limit UCLA's talent pool (4%, 18 Votes)
