Rutgers Hit Hard by State Budget Cuts

In response to the new state budget, Rutgers University has eliminated "750 jobs, 800 course sections and six intercollegiate sports." Tuition on the other hand, has been increased by 8%.

"This is not a happy day at Rutgers," said President Richard McCormick. The students' "ability to obtain an affordable Rutgers education is reduced."

Assemblyman Bill Baroni, R-Hamilton refers to the recent cuts at Rutgers as harmful to middle class families.
