Students seek answers from CSU chancellor

By Sandy Isidoro Students from local California State University campuses held a question-and-answer session with California State University Chancellor Charles Reed last Friday in an attempt to get answers from him concerning budget cuts. The chancellor currently makes more money, if not the same, as the U.S. president. This was also something students wanted an explanation for.

The event had booths lined up for information, contest and company vendors, but apparently, there were no booths for the ELAC Feminist Movement Club.
