Possible fee increase at Cal Poly Pomona

The Associated Student Inc. organization at California State Poly Pomona has proposed building a $90 million state-of-the-art campus Recreation Center. The center, if approved, will increase student fees by $149 per quarter in 2012 when the center opens.

After interviewing students on campus I found that there is a core group of students who are in favor of the proposal as well as a group who are opposed. Those in favor are about building a legacy and creating more opportunities for future students on campus.

Students who are opposed see the recreation center as too much money and that students and the university should be addressing other pressing needs such as possible cuts to Cal State schools by the governor’s proposed state budget.

Stay tuned for my article due out later this week and the student vote that will take place March 5 and 6.
