UNH: Fourth in the Nation

In a recent article on the Huffington Post  UNH was ranked as the fourth highest instate tuition for all public universities in the country. Only Penn State University Park, Maine Maritime and the University of Vermont ranked ahead of UNH. This is one of those rankings that we should not be proud of. With the impending state budget cuts tuition is sure to rise so what out UVM, we're coming for you!

Update: Saturday June 18

According to an article on Seacoast online, UNH faces a 13% tuition hike for the next school year. At this rate, when does the tuition costs exceed the true value of a public state university? Let's face it, UNH is just a public state university, soon (if it hasn't already happened) the costs will surpass the value and that could be detrimental to UNH's future. It is not efficient and President Huddleston's wishful UNH 2020 Plan is becoming even less realistic. With the impending budget cuts, deteriorating campus, under funded construction (cough Peter T Paul Business School) when will our administration, alumni and state wake up? Raising tuition is a short term answer for a long term problem.

Stay classy, not UMassy.
