University of Virginia students talked about higher education with school administrators and law makers on Tuesday.
The panel was hosted by Virginia 21, and allowed students to communicate with UVa. President Teresa Sullivan the importance of financial aid, and tell law makers about the need for state funding.
"I'm hoping that President Sullivan and Delegates Toscano and Landes hear that there are student concerns about being able to pay for education and about investing in education and recruiting good faculty," said Brendan Wyann, a student at UVa. "A lot of our faculty are getting up to retirement age and we want to make sure we bring the best here again and we can't do that without state funding."
Delegates Steve Landes and Davide Toscano were also on hand for the panel.
President Sullivan told students and school officials to expect state funding for UVa. to be at zero by the year 2020.
