Forget tuition... what about housing costs, transportation and books?
As a Stony Brook Alum, Would Nancy comment on the hidden fees? When I was an undergrad there were none, except for the activity fee. Now there are numerous fees that add up to 50% or more of the cost of the tuition, so that the cumulative increase over the years is much higher than the tuition increase would indicate.
I wish there was some discussion over the fact that this year's SUNY tuition increase was actually not going primarily to SUNY operating costs, but rather to subsidize other parts of the state budget. Why is this not a major NYS issue?
