    if you cant pay up go to a cuny, simple as that. No one feels sorry for their thousands of dollars in debt after graduation

    Every school's tuition increases almost every year.
    You can't just protest everything you don't like.

    from what i read ,,i think they are protesting cuz most of them pay 50 -60 grand a year and from what i hear i might be off but there are around 50 thousandstudents at nyu so do the math,, well these kids are protesting cuz they want to know where that money is going they want complete transparency, even to thepoint of how much teachers get paid if the schools donates money to what organizations, and also they want nyu to offer a few scholarship's to studentsfrom the gaza strip, and there gettin mad cuz the school officials wont even seat n meet with them to atleast talk

    At the risk of getting hurt/arrested/blacklisted.
    They're there for their education and its normal practice for a university to raise their tuition. It's a private institution, no one forced them to gothere. They really have no rights as far as protesting goes. Why not go somewhere else? Any "negotiating" the administration does with them isstrictly out of annoyance.

    While their initial goals may be admirable (even if some are a bit unrealistic*) do we, as a society, condone their methods? When does a sit-in become holdinga building hostage?


    *A tuition freeze? Riiiiiight.

    Being private I don't believe NYU has to disclose their info like a public university does. Boycott the school or their products, using the market is howyou get change!

    its good that something like this is happening. we are the laziest generation and instead of doing something about things we dont agree with we just sit ourself in front of a computer and complain about it.I know some of my previous teachers would be glad about this happening. something should be organized for thesunys,. also they are gonna get hit hard next year even the cunys
