The UT Student Senate is providing students an opportunity to fight for

more adequate higher education funding today and tomorrow from 10-3 p.m.,

by sponsoring a letter-writing campaign.

The senate will have a booth in the UC Plaza where students can either

write or drop off letters that will be mailed collectively by the SGA to

legislators in Nashville.

"This letter writing campaign is an excellent way for students to show

legislators their concern about the future of higher education," SGA

Historian and senator Kristin Mills said. "SGA senate proposed this project

in an effort to support the voices of students in a meaningful way."

Mills said that all of the letters will be mailed together at the expense

of the SGA.

"The intent is for the arrival of the letters all at once to make a

valuable impact on the legislators," Mills said.
