The Students for Quality Education hosted an open house and their first meeting of the year this week, giving students the opportunity to check the club out.

About 20 people came to Thursday’s event to discuss key issues and meet the club members while socializing over food.

About half of that number attended the meeting on the next day.

The meeting went over the goals the club has for the upcoming semester. These goals include:

  • opening black resource centers on every CSU campus
  • demilitarization of campus police
  • an increase in campus counselors of color
  • a 5 percent decrease in tuition instead of the presidents receiving a 3 percent increase in pay

The club isn’t just about accountability for the mismanagement of funds. Alejandro Alfuro Ramirez, an intern for the club, spoke on his beliefs of what the club stands for.

“Quality education doesn’t just mean cheap college,” Ramirez said. “It’s also about making the campus a safe space for anyone to join.”
