College Students Rally in Waves

March 4th, 2009 by flanews

For the second day in a row, college students gathered at the state capitol to protest spending cuts at state universities.

Students from eight schools waved signs and asked lawmakers to restore funding to their universities. University of Florida Junior Matt Goldberger said his school is still feeling the blow from last years state budget ax.

Theyre getting into the meat and the bone of the program. When you see the foreign language programs being eliminated entirely and the faculty to staff ratio at UF is 1,300 to one, then there is clearly a problem, said Goldberger.

Wednesdays event was sponsored by the Florida Student Association. Tuesday, students from FSU and FAMU held a rally at the capitol and Thursday student leaders from eight different schools will meet with lawmakers in Tallahassee.
