Public University Students Face Tuition Hikes

Tight budgets are forcing state universities on both sides of the line to raise tuition.

At Southern Oregon University, the president says the range is 8-12 percent. 

Humboldt State University students recently walked out of class to protest the planned tuition hike there.  We hear from students at both universities.
