News & Record Covers Student-Proposed Fee Increase
The News & Record published a front-page story April 9 about a fee increase for traditional-age students proposed by Community Senate. The Board of Trustees will consider the idea at its June meeting.
“As student leaders on Guilford’s campus, Community Senate decided to take action to help students who need some additional financial aid,” Yahya Alazrak ’12, president of Community Senate, has said of the proposal. Community Senate is the governing body for traditional-age students.
“In some cases, this will make a difference between a student continuing at Guilford or not. Senate will help allocate funds from the increased activity fee to specific scholars programs in order to preserve the diversity of students who make the Guilford such a unique and special learning environment.”
“It’s a classic Guilford move,” President Kent Chabotar told the newspaper.
