Despite months of protests, the University of California and California State University systems both approved student fee increases of up to 10 percent this week. Students staged a heated sit-in after the UC regents rejected a fee freeze, eventually leading to the arrest of 16 UC students—bringing the grand total of arrests to at least 26 (and don't forget all those faxes the Cal State students sent).

The fee hike will affect the systems' combined 33 campuses, and more than 670,000 students, this fall.
