Taking a look back to Feb. 5, 1982, I came across an interesting article about the Registration Fee Committee discussing fees for students.
The Reg Fee Committee asked the “University Athletic Recreation Policy Commission to approve a $1 charge on student football tickets.”
If only the UCLA-USC game were that cheap.
Also, for those who paid for freshman orientation, which is now $375, try not to cringe at the prices debated about in 1982.
The Committee discussed whether to subsidize the price of orientation for students. Without a Reg Fee subsidy, the Summer Orientation Program would cost $125. With the subsidy (worth about $36,000), it would cost $84, about $29 more than the year before.
I wish my orientation was that cheap, especially on a student budget!
