Many students at Ohio University in Athens were shaken awake this afternoon by an earthquake.
ATHENS, Ohio - Students at Ohio University aren't happy about a proposed tuition hike.
More than 100 students, some toting signs, marched on the southeastern Ohio campus Tuesday to demand a tuition freeze like at other state schools.
The Columbus Dispatch reports there could be more protests on the Athens campus Friday when university trustees plan to vote on a proposal to hike undergraduate tuition by 1.6 percent. The proposal also includes a 3.5-percent increase in room rates and a 0.5-percent hike in board fees.
Besides a tuition freeze, protesters are demanding salary caps and cuts to top administrators' salaries.
The University of Toledo and Ohio State University have announced plans to freeze tuition to make college more affordable. Ohio University now charges in-state undergraduates $10,216 per year in tuition and fees.
