Sunday letters: Act swiftly on Pastides’ tuition timeout request

February 16, 2014 

USC President Harris Pastides

— Thank you for publishing Harris Pastides’ Feb. 2 guest column (It’s time for a tuition timeout”). It is my fervent hope that the Legislature will act swiftly to grant our flagship university adequate funding to continue to improve upon its already excellent track record of academic discipline.

Higher education trains future members of a much more solid workforce for South Carolina. And those graduates who seek vocations outside of South Carolina can be proud that our state gave them top-notch tools with which to achieve any goals they acquire in the future.
