Mt. SAC students protest rising fees and class cuts in Walnut

About 75 students and a half-dozen faculty
rallied Wednesday against rising student fees and debilitating community
college cuts at Mount San Antonio College.

In response to an anticipated jump in fees from $36 to $46 per
unit beginning this summer, students shouted “How high are fees? Too
high!” and carried homemade signs that read “Tuition is tax – Keep it
off our backs” and “Stop the cuts.”

About 30 students capped a two-hour campus rally with a march
through the state’s largest single-campus community college, passing by
state Sen. Bob Huff’s Walnut office on Amar Road and Grand Avenue while
shouting “Tell Bob Huff: No more budget cuts.”
