Jennifer Reid


“It will impact my parents who pay my tuition. ... It will save them some money that they can use for house renovations and things like that.” --- Jennifer Reid, 19, undeclared major, Omaha

“I pay my own tuition by working two jobs...If tuition went up, I would have to get another, or a higher-pay job.” --- Holli Ruhl, 21, undeclared major, Omaha

“It won't really affect me. I have a scholarship. The Regents Scholarship gives me a full ride.” --- Andrew Thielen, 18, Omaha

“I pay for school myself with student loans. My parents help if I really need it, but I work to help pay for school. I would want this to pass. It would really help me out.” --- Michaela Morton, 19, undeclared major, Lincoln
