Student government holds town hall meeting

Louis LaVenture,

On Feb. 15 the Cal State East Bay Associated Students Inc. held a town hall style meeting in Lassen Hall on the Hayward campus.

According to ASI Vice President of University Affairs Louie C. Ramos, the purpose of the meeting was to educate students on the tuition increase, why it is happening and how to advocate against it. Students asked questions and filled out postcards with statements about how the increase would affect them, which according to Ramos will be sent to state legislators and the CSU Board of Trustees.

In addition to the CSUEB ASI representatives, California State Student Association members David Lopez and Jorge Reyes-Salinas also attended the meetings.
