    Hi,
    I’m a Phd grad student at the U. I went to a small liberal arts college in the midwest for my undergrad. Their tuition has doubled since I graduated (10 years ago). I wonder if my daughter (now 8 yrs old) will be priced out of the small liberal arts education. Such a thought makes me sad because of my own wonderful experience.
