Six hundred thirty-two California State University, Monterey Bay students voted in the 2023 Associated Students (AS) elections. The elections determine a number of things for the next academic year, including who the next AS officers will be and if the fee referendum will pass.
In previous articles in the Lutrinae, students appeared to have mixed opinions about the fee referendum. The student body still seemed to have conflicting thoughts when it came time to vote. With a 54.75% majority, the AS fee referendum has passed.
This means students can expect to see a $42 increase per semester in their student fees (which have been $48 per semester since 2003), totaling out to a $90 student fee.
The new AS officers have not yet been officially announced.
