Letter to the Editor: 11.11.11

(This letter is a response to the article titled “Dunn: student fee would reduce tuition increase” in the Nov. 4 edition of The Murray State News.)

If Dr. Dunn says that students will pay the same dollar amount whether the new library funds come from a fee or tuition what is the point of this whole debate? The University has decided that current students will foot a portion of the bill no matter what.

This seems like the University is trying to hide the true cost in fees so that cost of tuition continues to look low compared to other universities. This is bordering on providing dishonest information to prospective students.

Taking advice from the airline industry is not a good idea. People would rather see the real cost up front rather than find it hidden in fees and other charges.
