After securing millions for their liberal diversity initiatives, students seemed shocked when the administration refused to give in to their other demand for a tuition freeze. Members of the Student Senate complained that the Administration would not listen to students who want lower tuition rates. However, one Student Senate member made the obvious connection. Jacob Ellenhorn said, “The school raises tuition every year because they can't afford things, so I don't know how they're going to afford to take in refugees. USC has one of the highest tuitions in the country, and when people ask why that is, this is partly the reason.”
Ellenhorn sounds like the only sensible member on this Student Senate. A basic understanding of economics would show these young people that diversity initiatives have to be paid for by someone. As long as they keep asking for more unnecessary liberal bureaucracy, students and their parents will continue to pay more and more. Colleges should be focused on their real mission: providing a quality education for their students.
