SSU students approve fee hike to build student center

Correction: April 18, 2011

A story on April 14, 2011, about Sonoma State University said it was the first time students voted online. It was the first time students voted for a referendum online, but they previously voted for candidates online.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sonoma State University will build a $65 million student center after students agreed to raise fees by $150 a semester.

Supporters say the time is right to build a centralized place for students to meet, study and attend events, and a venue for more student jobs.

But approval of the 100,000-square-foot student center has some students upset that they'll be paying more to attend college, despite cuts to classes and services and tough economic times.
