As we all know, monopoly is bad.
I just looked at the breakdown of my $3300 tuition and student fees for 2008 winter session @ UBC out of curiosity.
Guess what I found?
$3 Sexual Assault Fund (does that mean I get to go sexually assault someone once I pay this fee?)
$5 Ubyssey Publication Fee (apparently a UBC newsletter)
$12 Student Aid Bursary Fund
among other things
Never knew doing business is that easy – just list all the money you want, and people will have to pay them.
IMHO, Upass included in student fees ($88×2 for two sessions) is ridiculous. What if I won’t be taking the bus? Why am I paying as much as people who take it 10 times a day? I am a big fan of users-pay-ism.
And all those forced “donations” too.
Okay I will quit complaining and pay whatever they say. I don’t get a choice do I?
