[Seha] Lobbying in Olympia, survey due Friday!

Please consider advocating for higher education by attending lobby day next week. This is a great opportunity to meet with legislators, learn about the political process, and meet other awesome UW students!
Sign up to attend student lobby day Friday February 3rd in Olympia:

Transportation to and from campus is provided, AND free lunch!

State financial support for the University of Washington has declined by 55% over the past five years, causing a 37.4% increase in tuition in the past two years alone.  Students are facing higher tuition, cuts to financial aid, the elimination of programs and larger class sizes with fewer TAs.  It is time for legislators to take a balanced approach and find new sources of revenue for higher education.  BARK against budget cuts!
