I don’t feel like an increase in fees would necessarily lead to a better education.
—Rayne Son, freshman in computer science
Not really, it is already expensive enough and I am OK with what we have now.
— Ben Koetting, sophomore in electrical engineering
Students are already paying quite a bit more to get a degree in the College of Engineering, and I think that there comes a point in time where you have to strike a balance between excellence for education and access and affordability. I think we have students who are not going to be able to afford to come to K-State, and specifically, are not going to be able to afford being in the College of Engineering, with this increase in fees. I think that we are beyond the point of cost, and that we need to figure out a solution that does not involve raising fees.
— Jack Ayres, senior in biological engineering and chemical engineering
I would be in support of a fee increase for better education. I feel like engineering is a program that is really crucial, whether you have a good education or not. It is important that we thoroughly educate people, and because everything is changing so rapidly, we need to stay up to date, and if that requires more money, so be it.
— Olivia Peiffer, freshman in chemical engineering
Yes, but there has got to be a limit, like I don’t want to keep paying more and more and more. Yes, it is always better to have a better education, but at the same time, the fees can get ridiculous.
— Garrett Sanders, junior in industrial engineering
