OT: NPR Story on UCLA and UC Budget Cuts

Mr. BB and I were listening to NPR on our way home last night, and we heard a story about the budget cuts to the UC System. Being that we are currently exiled, we have not heard many of these stories. NPR went to UCLA to hear from faculty and students about the budget cuts first hand. Overall, I have to say the story made me angry and depressed, but what saddened me most was to hear stories about students living out of their cars and having to use a food pantry to help make ends meet. No UCLA student should ever have to do that.

That's where you come in. I think this is an opportunity for all of us on BN to help our fellow Bruins. I contacted the student mentioned in the story about the food pantry to see how I could help. I am still waiting for a response, but I told her that I would like to share this story with my fellow alums so that we can all pitch in.

If you would like to hear or read a transcript of the story, click here. I will share any information with you as soon as I can.
