Budget cuts affect campus-wide renovations, financial aid and academics - Lily Katz, Daily Illini

When Grace Leung, senior in LAS, found out her required class was canceled due to low enrollment, she figured she could just take it during the spring semester. After speaking with her advisor, however, she learned that the class might be canceled indefinitely due to budget cuts. Repair and renovations, student financial aid and academics all may be affected due to the significant decrease in state funding this year. For some students, cut classes might make it harder for them to fulfill certain course requirements for their majors. According to the University provost, over a five-year span, the state has made more than $113 million in financial reductions. This number only accounts for the University of Illinois campuses.
