UC students to protest tuition increases

        University of Cincinnati students will protest rising tuition and falling state support today and Wednesday.

        Today, at noon, student government will express its displeasure with state and UC officials at a rally and press conference on the Administration Building steps on the main campus.

        Wednesday, UC is hiring four buses to take students to a Columbus rally to protest what they call a lack of support by the General Assembly and governor.

        “A lot of Republicans still think that education is a liberal idea,” said organizer Randy O'Hara, 24, of Corryville.

        Mr. O'Hara, a GOP activist, said the Columbus rally was pulled together by UC political science classmates with support from students on at least seven other Ohio universities.

        He was not joining Tuesday's protest “because I want the administration and faculty on my side.”

        UC undergrad tuition and fees have risen more than 15 per cent in the past year.
