CHICAGO STATE FACES UNCERTAINTY AS STATE BUDGET STALEMATE LOOMS - Will Jones, ABC7 Chicago

As Illinois' state budget crisis drags on, Chicago State University faces an uncertain future which may include drastic changes if the school doesn't receive its state funding. "I am really nervous about our future, next semester, next year," said CSU student Paris Griffin, who is president of the school's Student Government. She is leading the push on her South Side campus for Springfield to agree on a budget. "Different many student leaders have come together to put pressure, brainstorm on different ways we can put pressure on the governor so he realizes how important our university is to us and how detrimental it is for us not to have a budget," Griffin said. State funding makes up about 30 percent of university's budget. http://abc7chicago.com/education/chicago-state-faces-uncertainty-as-state-budget-stalemate-looms/1160774/
