Hang tight, tuition is back on the rise

I’m having a hard time trying to understand how the combined tuition of 42,500 students only adds up to approximately 35% of the annual revenue. That aside, having the country’s highest tuition and living right next to Quebec (or in my case, in Quebec) is seriously discouraging. I understand that our funds go to important areas such as research, our programs (more than 200 undergrad alone, I believe) and scholarships/bursaries/financial aid, but there has to be some way to make it all work without leaving us dry.

Also, having read this, I can’t help but wonder if the perks are the same for uOttawa personnel (keep in mind this article was posted in 2008).
