UCSD students stage sit sin in protest of tuition hikes

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8 ) - UC San Diego students are staging a sit in at a lecture hall to protest tuition increases.

More than a dozen students spent the night in Peterson Hall and have no intentions of leaving.

They set up camp inside the building Monday after a march across campus.

UC regents approved a plan last week that will increase tuition by 5 percent each year for 5 years.

Students are also occupying buildings at several other UC campuses.
