First of all I thank you for that photo of University of Alaska Southeast Chancellor John Pugh and myself. So many readers called to tell me what a neat picture it was. So I looked at it and then read the article.
I am sad, disappointed, insulted and outraged, in that order. I attended the meeting of the University of Alaska Board of Regents because I felt the tuition hike is untimely. I tried to be calm while I talked against the tuition hike. The students at the university are our future. There will be leaders among the students. Why try to slow the process? Some of them will leave for other universities down south, why not? The tuition will then be comparable.
