increase, Ort's office receives 35 percent to pass on to needy tudents; however, when the UNC System impo es an increase, her office receives no additional money and must find other available sources. "While we tmderstand the need of the Legislature to increase tuition ... we are aware of the added burden this places on students - particularly students who qualify for need-based financial aid and our out-of-state students who pay much more for tuition," Ort said. "We will do everything we can to use our resources to assist students. We would prefer to give them grants, but the fact remains that many more students than usual will have to borrow m.oney." Some students, how- ever, have no remaining loan eligibility. Yet Ort does not think anyone will be forced to leave school because, she said, Carolina's financial aid packages "are con- siderably better than those offered by most public four-year institutions." Many students are angry about the tuition increase. Umur Tuncer, a senior from Turkey, said: "The University should have a policy where it guarantees students that it won't raise tuition more than 4 percent each year. It seems really unfair to ut-of-state students who have already planned their budgets for the year - especially students £i'om other continents." Over the SUI11Jller, members of Car- olina's student government traveled to Raleigh to express their concern about the budget. On Aug. 27, Student Body Presi- dent Justin Young organized a protest rally ofseveral hundred students in the Pit; some held signs that proclaimed"Don't Pay Twice" and encouraged passing students to e-mail their legislative representatives.
