SAN DIEGO San Diego State University students and faculty took part in a campus-wide demonstration earlier today. This is the second rally at the university in the past two weeks.
SDSU students and faculty are calling for smaller class sizes, no new fees or fee increases, and an end to employee furloughs and layoffs.
Jung Min Choi, a sociology professor at San Diego State, said he hopes the public is taking notice.
“For so long, I think people have expected (students and faculty) to be passive," said Choi. "So when a rally like this happens, I think a lot of people are surprised both pleasantly and for other people, maybe not. But I think this is an important part of being educated."
The San Diego State demonstration comes one day after a march held at UC San Diego. University of California students are rallying against a possible 30 percent fee increase and more cuts to enrollment next fall. The UC Board of Regents is expected to vote on the proposals this week.
