Tuition Freeze

In the article "In-State Students See Tuition Freeze," Brian Stelter gives Towerlight readers the lowdown on tuition relief. After reallocation of state funds by the University System of Maryland, Gov. Ehrlich was able to announce a freeze on tuition.

This is a great story. It's informative and relevant. But I think this story would be a lot more relateable if the reader could see the viewpoint of students affected by the decision. Perhaps a student at Towson could have been interviewed and asked their opinions on the tuition cap.

For students attending Towson University or any other university in the state of Maryland, this is definitely good news. It's especially good news for those students who are working their way through college and fighting for financial aid to earn their degree. That's why I think it's important to hear from the students who might benefit from the tuition freeze.
