Liberia: UL Predicts Trouble On Campus

The Administration of the University of Liberia has disclosed that some students have planned to disrupt classes both on the Capitol Hill and Fendell campuses, beginning today, Monday, January 21, 2013.

Speculations had circulated on both campuses of plan by the UL Administration to increase tuition to US$5.00 per credit hour, something the student population has vowed to vehemently resist.

But in a press release Sunday, UL Administration categorically clarified that "it has not made any official pronouncement of any increment in tuition for 2012-2013." The UL Administration has warned all students on campuses that the disruption of academic and administrative activities is a violation of the students' Handbook.

"Any student caught involved in these acts at the University will be severely dealt with in accordance with the students' Handbook. The University Security and photo journalists will be posted to capture the presence of would-be violators", the release read.

Meanwhile, the Administration has advised all UL students to pay particular attention to their studies in preparation for the semester's final examinations, slated for early February.
