I am Cristal Sandoval a senior at Western Oregon University and a board member of the Oregon Students of Color Colalition, one of three governing boards of the Oregon Student Association. Students need to be a part of this dicussion because we know better than anywho why it is so important to keep things affordable. Yesterday, i stood in the financial aid line and i am about to represent the Oregon Student Association before the Senate of Education Committee to discuss the importance of the Oregon Opportunity Grant. Many of my peers have recieved cuts in thier grant and they are facing some hard decisions. We need to focus our state on educating Oregonians. There is no need to make a shift in our system but instead a shift in how what we prioritize. Instead of continually cutting out colleges we need to support them.
