On the days leading up the "Walk into Action," I came across quite a few naysayers. Several students expressed skepticism about the effectiveness of such a rally. Many more doubted that people would turn out for the event. Hundreds of students gathered to challenge these sentiments on a misty afternoon on April 13 to collectively demand from our administration that something be done about the increasing costs of tuition. Passionate speeches were given, and chants were carried throughout the crowd for the entirety of the rally. I even ran into those aforementioned naysayers in the midst of the rally, screaming, "You say cut backs, we say fight back!" We united as students to fight on that day for something that is an integral part of our society — a quality education that is also affordable.
